Mauritius to become one big wi-fi hotspot
Citywide mesh networks, nabled by folks like Tropos are becoming all the rage for vote-grabbing and savvy local politicians. They have been much discussed by the very smart Kevin Werbach.
Kevin's now native is Philadelphia looking to deploy citywide free public wi-fi, and it becoming common place in Asia, how long before an island nation entered the game - thank you, Mauritius :)
"Mauritius is about to stake a new claim to fame. By year's end, or soon afterward, it is expected to become the world's first nation with coast-to-coast wireless Internet coverage, the first country to become one big "hot spot."
Now imagine Skype wifi phones and you really have an island paradise.
