In an ideal world wireless internet should be free, and maybe when we get 4G networks it might be. Until then though it shouldn’t be stupidly expensive.
I have noticed though that there are some venues in London who are still charging ridiculous fees for Wi-Fi coverage. One place we looked at recently wanted to charge £60 per person for wi-fi at a conference. And this was an event full of people who wanted to tweet and and email about the proceedings.
This really is extortion, there’s no other word for it. How can they possibly charge so much for a service that should basically be free?
So £60 per person. Can anyone beat that?
