Free Wireless in Tempe

Met a friend in the same line of business as mine to finish the day’s work on Mill St over a beer. Or five.

Tempe has free wireless access down the length of Mill and in Tempe Beach Park (go figure). Not that you would need it with the sheer number of unprotected connections at each of the three places I stopped.

On the patio at Uno’s there were more than twenty hotspots. Half of which were locked down.

It’s really cool to know that I can leave the office and work the rest of the day outside with guaranteed access. And a guaranteed good atmosphere. And beer.

I have to mention the fantastic service offered by Uno’s bartender Tim. Thanks!

    I work in the roadway construction business and I have a full mobile office setup in my truck. It usually only takes me about five minutes to drive around my projects and find a hotspot that I can use while in my truck. Especially when I spent the summer working in Sedona and Cottonwood, neither of which have seen a business license for Kinko’s come through the city offices.

    As of last week we took shipment on wireless cards from Alltel for all of the trucks in our fleet and I gotta say, for $70 a month its nice to be able to pull off the road and send e-mail correspndance back and forth with our central office right away. The $70 ends up being a wash when we look at the gas we save not having to travel into the main office every day.
