Today, or yesterday, whichever, doesn’t matter, Toronto Hydro’s wireless blanket has begun to spread across the downtown core.
Right now it’s just a “small” area Front St. to Queen, Church to Spadina, but it’s free for 6 months!
I’m gonna give it a go tomorrow and see how well it works. Even their monthly price is very reasonable. $29/mo. The daily and hourly rates are insane as with any other wireless hotspot.
They claim super speeds too, 7 Mbps. Rogers is 6 Mbps tops, and I think Sympatico is 5 Mbps tops… Good times ahead.
Of course, there’s always those Open, Free access points that people have…
