Wi-Fi on Demand for All?

Recent standard change and a push in major cities to embrace wi-fi could make it quicker and easier for large-file users to work without wires.

Recent standard change and a push in major cities to embrace wi-fi could make it quicker and easier for large-file users to work without wires. In June the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) approved new, faster wi-fi standards that will allow for speedier connection and transfer. Manufacturers had expected the sign-off and have already created products and tools to align with the much-faster standard. Also, this spring Paris became the world's first major metro to experiment with offering wide public access for Internet and Web users. In a month-long trial run, the city erected antennas across a wide swath along the Metro, allowing those nearby to go online if their equipment was wi-fi ready.
