Telstra will begin a trial of its nation-wide public Wi-Fi network this November, installing Wi-Fi hotspots in busy public hubs and in its network of payphones across Australia. As a sweetener, Wi-Fi access at the 1,000 hotspots will also be free in advance of the network's official launch early next year.
"For the first time you'll be able to use your home broadband allowance outside the house...all you have to do is share a little bit of your broadband access with others -- you can use their hotspots, they can use yours," Telstra said of the new network when it was announced in May.
Oh I can't wait for the security nightmare. And as for pay phone sites any Australian can tell you these are few and far between.
Hang on, This will have a user name and password like any wifi? Can you say Reaver, and aircrack and Mac Changer..
