More Walking, More Wifi (in Charlottetown)

After walking around the block earlier in the week, today I went warwalking from the office to home and back to see what sort of wifi saturation I would find.

I walked down Queen St. to Richmond, left on Richmond to Prince, left on Prince to Kent, left on Kent to University, right on University to Fitzroy, and left on Fitzroy back to the office. Here’s what’s out there:

  • 68 wireless access points detected
  • 56% open access (38 of 68)
  • 44% WEP-enabled (30 of 68)
  • Recognizable locations (from the SSID):
  • 14 access points didn’t broadcast an SSID.
  • 20 access points supported rates up to 54 Mbps

I believe you may have hit on something.

I think this may just be a new Olympic event especially for geeks.

So, does a down town mesh make sense given this?
