A vacation to the Midwest states revealed some interesting wireless networks.
Iowa – Hot spot wireless at highway rest stops. Corn, cows, and wifi.
Airports: Denver, San Jose, Omaha, Phoenix – Free wireless. Previously this was a pay service. Most networks with Cisco gear in use. To connect to one airport network had to pass through 5 pages of captive portal to finally get access. Awkward.
Southwest Airlines – Wireless access on the flight. Pay service. Content filter, no videos. No thanks.
My niece watched Barney videos on my iPhone. Now that’s next generation wireless.
