Lots of spots in SoCal In LA - they have a LOT of Wifi - probably more coverage than most ever would use, and keeps many from requiring a cell plan on a tablet.

Re: Lots of spots in SoCal Indeed, there is a lot of coverage near commercial boulevards.
But connectivity and signal quality varies widely.
With a good connection, 15/1 is common.
Meh So far I have not been that impressed with the ones in KC. They connect about 1/3 of the time and when they do the speeds are only good enough to lightly browse on a tablet.
who cares? how about upgrading that infrastructure?
Re: who cares? Maybe that's what they are doing.
Building a mesh network to bypass their lame hybrid coax fiber network.
Re: who cares? probably more likely to push a deal to many 'urban dwellers' (NYC) where they wouldn't want to pay the extra $20-$30/month for limited data over cellular.
Maybe their long term is to partner with a cellular provider (aren't they hitching up with VZW?). It'd give AT&T a run for their money, and reduce the cost of overages, and give them some clickstream cash.

Put near my locations! So I can use if mine goes down. :P
Re: Put near my locations! This most likely wouldn't help you. Especially if they're putting the APs on the cable lines along the street.
