What an intersting and crazy idea: ATMs as WiFi hotspots. It is a cool idea because
- It has electricity power
- It must have a telephone line
- It is expensive (so people don’t care too much to put a Wifi AP)
- It is placed in crowded business centers where people more likely need WIFI
- People can easily pay for WIFI (if they are not free).
The original idea comes from nyc at typepad but I cannot access the site via my dial up to 16300 (User name 16300, password 16300). It seems typepad.com has been blocked. Anyway, the idea is cool. I love it.
How I eager to find a WIFI very soon? I am getting back from WIFI to dial up. There is no ADSL, no Cable Modem in Pudong. I just found out the FTTB+LAN by Telecom is also not opened yet although the line has been deployed to my room. I miss the Network Infrastructure in my previous home in Pudong. As you can see, the above are major broadband solutions in Shanghai: ADSL, Cable Modem, China Telecom FTTB+LAN, Greatwall Broadband…
