Hi, just realized you'd added your wifi access options here. Yes we have iPhones up here on the Rogers wireless network.
So, they're a monopoly and the rates they charge are robbery. Unless you're self-employed or your company pays for you
to have one, I don't think many have them, at least I've not seen many.
So your iPhone has a built in wifi scanner antenna which doesn't need the ISP network to access the web?
Our laptop (like most) has a wifi antenna which we use to use free internet off wireless access points where ever we can.
The iPhone does this as well? Or do you use your ISP's network when you're on the road for access? As
I said on the other thread (BP Gas.....) the problem for Canadians is the rates go through the roof when
we cross the border. What would your monthly bill be if you did all the things you've mentioned in Northern
Ontario? You do have a great 365 day solution at home and on the road, as long as you don't cross the border
into Canada or Mexico, I suspect. I wish I could get the same when I enter the US, and that's what this thread is all about.
I hope the free internet thing becomes more widespread down in the US too. It would solve both problems
in the sense that I could then get the daily financial info I need off the internet. All I'd have to worry about would be
network/laptop/firewall security then. I could live with that solution. I wouldn't need the broad TV channel access.
Maybe the final answer is the one you've espoused on both threads - forget TV/Internet and just enjoy the
peace and quiet of nature?
Anyway, we're up to -9C and I'm off out to do the shopping.
Thanks for your input on this stuff, it does help.
