Wireless broadband for Canberra!

By tom 1 June 2005 27

I love my iBurst veritel modem and now it looks like veritel’s coverage has been extended up to Gungahlin and down to Farrer.

Check out this map which shows the new extended wireless broadband coverage for Canberra.

I absolutely love my iBurst modem. I live in a part of Lyneham that transact, telstra and optus will not serve. I can take my iBurst to work (in the Parliamentary triangle) or even up to Sydney with me. No dialing up required – no waiting on Telstra phone people to install anything. I have the desktop version, so all I need is a power outlet. Magic!

Help guys…have landline adsl but am looking at broadband – speedwise how do they compare? Anyone know when the Red Hill tower will actually be running?

Nick, Dickson College by any chance, we had open wireless at the start of the year…but you would have needed a proxy username and password.

Well there are a few free hotspots.

Nerdband is running in Pancake Parlour if you can stand the scientologists.

They used to be in valentinos but a rogue WAP was crapflooding garema place (somewhat suspiciously) I believe that can be overcome with the new routers coming out.

There’s no such thing as a FREE lunch Nick (except for ACT politicians ).

what about FREE wireless?

there’s the nerdvana hotspot at deli marco in dickson, and i’ve found a few by driving around with a stumbler going, but…

i was parked near a school that had an open wifi network, surfing and downloading – and the cops rumbled me. guess i looked suspicious sitting there for a couple of hours a couple of days running.

and i’ve never been able to find an open wifi network in the civic area yet…

Good enough for me.

But what about this dodgy Ralph character…..
