Taipei’s WiFi Grid

Slashdot points to a Reuters report: ” The city-wide network will be built by Q-Ware Corp., a unit of the Uni-President (1216.TW) group, which also holds the 7-Eleven franchise in Taiwan. Q-Ware will deploy at least 20,000 access points throughout Taipei at a cost of US$70 million… Q-ware is aiming for a basic monthly fee of T$150-T$400 (US$4.5-US$12), far less than the T$800-T$1,000 (US$24-US$30) that fixed-line broadband providers demand in Taiwan. It expects to sign up a third of the city’s 3 million residents and break even within 5 years.”
