Toronto to be a Giant Hotspot!!

I have heard the telecom majors want to milk their networks by monitoring the traffic within their “pipes”.. so they have a whole lot of folks to contend with.. and the Government itself may turn out to be a major competition! It is intriguing that the North America – the bastion of Capitalism – we are seeing the growth of Govt-managed Internet Wi-fi networks!! Economies are turning on their heads through Internet …. in more ways than one!!

Toronto Hydro Corp. will announce Tuesday that it plans to turn Canada’s largest city into one giant wireless hotspot, directly challenging the country’s major mobile phone carriers for a chunk of the $8 billion a year wireless market.

With the deployment, which sources say could be available in the downtown core as early as this fall, Toronto joins a growing list of North American cities, including Philadelphia, New Orleans and San Francisco, that have announced plans to bring low-cost, broadband wireless access to their citizens and businesses.
