Hey Millstone, I started a post a while back re: wireless Hamilton here:
Here's a rough map for the Downtown Wireless Zone
As for service, it depends on what you're using?
If you have a laptop and just want to sit in Gore Park and people watch while typing away, or inside a place like Infusions (preferrably the patio), then you're ok.
But if you have an Ipod Touch, walking while trying to surf the net is a lil more difficult. You'd be best to stop when the signal is strongest, find a thread you want to read (assuming you're as addicted to SSP as me), and then continue walking. Then stop and surf then walk ahahaha It's kind of annoying.
If you're driving or bussing it thru the core, don't even bother. You wont have time to catch a signal. And if you're using an Ipod Touch, #1 most important thing, PAY ATTENTION ! ! ! hahaha
I've walked into a lady one day, and almost had the snow from ontop of London Tap House shovelled onto my head if it wasn't for a worker at
street-level who saved me! hahaha
ps: EMAIL THEM (http://www.myhamilton.ca/myhamilton/...ltonsurvey.htm
) and let them know you want to project extended past September. Also tell them how they can improve service. They REALLY want feedback on this thing, and would love to one day see Hamilton completely wifi like Philly already is!
