Crawling from the wreckage
Still trying to dig out from under a heap of "must do's," I have failed to comment on a couple of developments in the wireless arena. Firstly, the ever-excellent Vincent Dekker at Trouw covers the KPN/T-Mobile WiFi roaming story, which as he points out, will give Skype/VoIP users in Amsterdam alone a combined 100 locations where they can jabber away. Secondly, OFCOM yesterday released a tersely worded statement (which doesn't seem to be in the site), which read as follows:
"In 1992 a Wireless Telegraphy Act licence was awarded to provide Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) services. Ofcom today agreed to remove certain unnecessary restrictions to allow Pipex - the current licensee - the freedom to choose what technology to use in delivering a FWA service."
I'm not sure what this means exactly, and if it has any implications for mobility. If anyone has any ideas or views, they would be most welcome.
