wireless network overload
This menu for available wireless networks shows a ridiculous overload of individual internet access accounts. Some antennas are home networks, some are business. Does every physical address really need it’s own internet connection (with it’s own $50-$100/mo service charge)? Some towns here in the Boston suburbs provide their own town-wide internet (wireless everywhere), that all residents can access from any device. I wonder if that wouldn’t be a cheaper, more efficient service solution in the long run. Every home or business does not need it’s own modem-router-antenna equipment. This equipment, by the way, is usually rented to the consumer at an extra cost of $10-$20/mo, and most of the time the equipment itself is only worth about $20 total cost. This hardware and service redundancy benefits only the internet service providers, not the consumer.
