This post will likely only appeal to those living in my home province, Saskatchewan.
Residents and visitors to the downtown business districts and post-secondary institutions of Saskatchewanâ€™s four largest centres will soon be able to access the countryâ€™s largest wireless Internet network, free-of-charge. Premier Lorne Calvert and Minister responsible for Information Technology Andrew Thomson made the announcement today in Saskatoon.
The Saskatchewan! Connected initiative will offer users basic Internet service in Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Regina, and Moose Jaw via a wireless Wi-Fi network to be operated by the government Information Technology Office, SaskTel and other partners. The service will also be available in select business districts in close proximity to downtown Saskatoon and Regina.
This should be interesting. More information here.
