5000 Free WiFi Accounts!


We reached a minor milestone on Monday, hitting 5000 free WiFi access accounts around mid-day. It's good to see the system being used so much, 'cause that's what it's there for.

The busiest node on the entire network (most new accounts) is World Class Bakers on St. Clair Ave. W. I guess it helps to have coffee and cookies to go with the WiFi!

Another node at Councillor
Adam Giambrone's
constituency office should also get some decent usage in the next few months, since a better antenna was installed a while back. We should probably get some better usage stats and put them on the web... any web coders wanna volunteer?

The big antenna in Kensington Market probably has the most data traffic... 150GB a month, as of September 13. Any ideas for other super-nodes with big antennas?

I would be interested in what type of antennas you use for your main nodes , and what distance covers. I try to put up a network like that , but antenna comparisons are killing me.
