Wireless internet access is so prevalent in our society, that two opposing forces begin to emerge; Innovation and Failure. It appears as though everyone has an opinion these days – so what is yours?
Everywhere you go, there is WiFi internet access. What started off in homes and Coffee Shops has now spread to marinas, schools, libraries, hotels, motels, beaches and even cities. In my mind, T-Mobile initiated the wave closing a big deal with Starbucks nationwide half a decade ago. As expected as soon as the big boys smell success, they move in – as did AT&T later pushing T-Mobile out of 7,000 locations.
The smaller Cafés were forgotten. They needed a complete turnkey solution to meet customer demands. Whotspot.com moved in to fill that niche. For only $499 you too can supply wireless internet access to your customers. Free, Paid or Free with a purchase, every option available to bring in and keep customers happy is now available.
Providing internet access in moving vehicles was the next major innovation. The major Telcos/ISPs all began providing internet sticks to allow your laptop to surf anywhere cellular coverage is available. This limited access to 1 computer at a time paying exorbitant monthly fees. Along came NexAira with their WIRELESS 3G POWERED WIFI GATEWAY, available at Whotspot.com. You can now broadcast WiFi from your bus, limo, car, train, truck or any moving vehicle. Problem solved!
On the Doom and Gloom side: Now that WiFi is everywhere, the naysayers are out in full force. Studies have proven WiFi to be safe, yet recent reports WiFi is bad have emerged. The fact that it’s much less powerful than mobile phone communications seems to have been put aside in favor of scaremongering. There’s absolutely no evidence that WiFi is dangerous.
To help set the record straight, in its 2004 document What are Electromagnetic Fields: Health Effects, the World Health Organization said: “In the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years … Based on a recent in-depth review of the scientific literature, the WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields.” This conclusion is echoed by the public health organizations of virtually every industrialized country, including Health Canada and the American Cancer Society.
So, it is safe to assume that WiFi is safe and here to stay! I’m sure Apple is happy about that too. Have you brought your iPad to a WiFi Hotspot? I’d like to know what are your experiences?
