As Damien has already mentioned, E|Net announced a new Wifi network in Carlow today. According to the article Brisknet, Aptus and Bitbuzz are going to be the initial providers of Wifi access in the town.
I have been fairly unimpressed with the details available online about the wireless network though. There is absolutely no information on the E|Net site that I can see, not even a mention in the News sidebar.
Brisket's coverage maps only cover Roscommon, Mayo and Galway. There is no mention of Carlow on their site at all.
Aptus (What a site!!) have nothing on their site about coverage in Carlow, or about anything for that matter!
The whole project to get Wifi in the town is a great idea, and I look forward to when it is actually useful. However the announcement that it has gone live seems to be very premature, one hot-spot in a shopping center is not a municipal WiFi network.
