City-wide WiFi comes to Amsterdam

Good news if you have a wireless PC in Amsterdam (I live here and have a wireless PC!) – Bink reports that startup firm HotSpot Amsterdam launched a wireless computer network yesterday with a supercharged version of the WiFi technology that is used to turn homes, airports, hotels and cafes into web-connected hot spots.

Bink reports that the first seven base stations are up and running, connecting historic areas that date back to the 13th century, while the entire city center will be covered by 40 to 60 antennas within three months, HotSpot Amsterdam founder Carl Harper said. That network would be able to support several thousand users, he said. | Amsterdam Start-Up to Offer WiFi Internet Citywide
