Free WiFi in Penang : Wireless@PENANG

Further to the Wireless@KL which I personally had an bad experience on it, never able success to get online thru it or even browse to it portal page! ( Just keep showing "under maintenance" ) It happen in most of the wireless@KL in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur!


Back to the topic, on this day 19th Sept 2008, Wireless@PENANG is launched by the Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. Penangites is going to enjoy free wifi wireless network within Penang! Their target to complete it within 18 to 24 months.

It sounds great, isn't it? You can now login to your messenger tool like MSN, Yahoo! all day long using Wifi instead of expensive and unstable crap 2G or 3G network! You can even make voice call to your buddy using skype and it is all Free! Cool!

Again, back to the realistic. How stable and how brilliant the network maintenance will be ? How the team would handle the 2.4GHz RF interferences and hand-over ? It would some of the challenges ( there are actually more.. ) that the operator and the network builder have to iron it...
