Norwich's innovative city centre wi-fi ne marche pas. Please to imagine the lovely Norfolk pictures trapped on my laptop.

I was never sure whether they had actually gone live with the public wifi stuff or not. The impression I got was that it's still being tested, so only public sector workers could use it. I could be wrong.

So far, my experience of city or corporate wifi is not very free and usually doesn't work. Has led me to an 'all your base are belong to us'expectation.

willing to wait for photos.

actually, the street net on Islington High street is usually OK and you can use it in any coffee shop provided that you're at the front of the shop..

Hello, thanks for the sympathy. According to the rather unbothered man on the information desk at the library, it's meant to be open to the public. He even had little cards. However he did add that I was the third person to come in and say it didn't work that day.

BBC News had a couple of big articles about this going live for the public (it's only 256k, whereas council worked get 1mb)...they had someone testing it on the day it launched and he had a few problems - shame really as it's a great idea!

I hope they do it in Birmingham sooner rather than later!

It *is* a great idea but the not working sort of ruins it. When you have an expectation of something and you don't get it, it's more annoying than never having it at all...

And of course you don't know where to go for "tech support".

James says:

Agreed - it's definitely more annoying when you know what you're missing. If only these initiatives could be rolled out smoothly. I still dream of a wi-fi world!

Useless suggestion - you could try our old friend Barry... you wouldn't get any tech-support, but you might get your ears talked off... :P
