Better than WarDriving

Cable ties were cut across a large, four-kilometre swath of the region around University Avenue yesterday.


But there wasn't any disconnection.


It was a ceremonial "cutting of the cable" to launch Canada's largest coherent wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) zone.


The connection will be free until January, run as a pilot project by FibreTech Telecommunications Inc., a firm owned by the public utility companies in the region.


The wireless signal covers a four kilometre radius, in and out of all the cafes, restaurants, businesses, apartments, homes, parks and other spaces around 140 to 170 University Avenue, and up as far as Columbia Street, an area where a huge number of students live, eat and do their work.
