    High Speed Wireless from TELUS Mobility

    TELUS Mobility is proud to introduce HotSPOT service!

    TELUS Mobility HotSPOTs are public access zones offering high-speed Wi-Fi access to the Internet using 802.11b technology. HotSPOTs are the ideal way to stay connected - wherever your work takes you. With key sites across Canada, HotSPOTs provide high-speed internet access where you need it most - in airports, hotels, convention centres, cafes and restaurants.

    Key Features
    • Convenient 24/7 access to the Internet
    • High Speed Access with transfer speeds up to 11Mbps
    • Access your corporate network through an established VPN
    • Simple account registration and service plans to get you up and running quickly!


    Once you're at a HotSPOT, you'll need a Wi-Fi enabled
    laptop or other computing device. When you launch your Web browser, a HotSPOT
    login page will appear. Fill in the information required and you're ready to go. Most
    new laptops and PDAs are embedded with 802.11 network cards. If their computer
    doesn't have a network card, clients may purchase one at a computer or consumer
    electronics retailer.

    Wow, thats insanely expensive.
    I think I prefer borrowing internet from people with unsecured routers when I'm waiting for the bus or trying to get to a blocked site from school.

    Pretty cool. I'd buy a day if I was at a Hotel or Conference Centre doing training or at a seminar all day long.

    You have to look at the alternatives:

    1) No internet at all
    2) Trying to find a phone jack to dial-up
    3) 1x which is up to $100/month

    Any executive who travels routinely in areas where HotSPOTs are set-up will appreciate this service.

    The pricing is not bad really.......

    if it goes fully 11mbps then it's faster than anything that's out there (maybe except fiber optic)


    Cell Phone provider: Fido, Rogers, 3 Hong Kong 3G
    Internet Provider: Telus, Shaw, Fido (GPRS + iFido), NEW: Rogers EDGE via Fido Plan

    TELUS is not deploying a blanket wifi network. The hotspots only work within a short radius of the wifi node. Unless you only ever plan on using the internet in coffee shops and airports then you still need another connection somehow.
