I’m sitting in a hotel room on the Parade in Napier typing this. I’ve just read Simon Hendery’s none to surprising editorial about WiFi availability in this country.
My experiences of the last two days;
- Koru club lounge at Christchurch Airport – WiFi not working
- Koru club lounge at Wellington Airport – had to visit concierge and get dinky little piece of paper with the WiFi to use it (and bear in mind this is in the Koru lounge – not the general airport. How many Koru club member would expect this sort of hassle
- Hotel in Napier. WiFi available at $10/day or a minimum trffic charge that is crazy considering my 36 hour visit
I resorted to using dialup which is a particularl sobering experience and one sure to;
b) remind one just how far we have to go in New Zealand
So Simon, no surprises in what you wrote.
