Adrian Weckler of the Sunday Business Post penned this article in yesterday’s paper about a free Wifi service for Dublin. I am dumbfounded by the following remark, where he is talking about the cost of such an implementation.
"It would cost no more than €10 million to create, a
fraction of the vast sums being deployed in poorly adopted rural
broadband schemes (for people who are lukewarm about the technology in
the first place)."
Yes – you read that last bit correctly; I wonder what Damien thinks about these kind of sweeping statements.
Regardless of whether the schemes have been poorly adopted or not – I think the take up/use of the Metropolitan Area Networks should have been mentioned as well.
