A thought to end the week on.
Now there are some great examples of Wi-Fi in good old New Zealand. For example this one, where a Dunedin Bus company is providing Free Wi-Fi on their buses! And off course the numerous libraries around the country now offering free Wi-Fi via the APNK. But we are no where close to what is offered in the Untied States where there is free Wi-Fi in over 11000 MacDonalds.
It has made me look at Internet Cafes, and libraries that charge, and wonder slightly at their future. In fact it must be especially hard for Internet Cafes. More and more business are no longer looking at Internet provision as Added Service/Revenue Stream, instead the provision of Internet access, and especially Wi-Fi seems to be viewed as ”loss leader”. Against that how are they going to cope?
