Should Wi-Fi be everywhere, and free?
Raise your hand if you're a Wi-Fi hotspot.
It's easier to give yourself the label these days with products like MiFi and the ability to turn your mobile phone into a hotspot.
But here's the question that preoccupies me: Why isn't there free Wi-Fi everywhere?
Not just in businesses, I mean, but in the air, everywhere? Some cities offer public Wi-Fi and others, such as York, have it via a downtown group called Y-Fi.
The Internet has become so integral to business these days that when it's not available, operations all but shut down.
Some of you are lucky enough to have Wi-Fi in your building, but IT managers obviously are keen on hard wiring into the network. It's more secure and reliable.
What are your thoughts on Wi-Fi?
