WiFi Business Model Proves Elusive
Posted: 18-May-2003 [Source: Reuters]

[Cost to consumer and roaming issues plague develoment of WiFi.]

by Bernhard Warner and Braden Reddall, London -- "Whether it be broadband Internet access, 3G mobile phones or flat screen monitors, the high-tech industry has turned hyping new technologies into high art. Cashing in is another matter entirely.

WiFi -- a technology that allows users of laptops and handheld mobile gadgets to surf the Net in public places at high speeds -- is the latest favored acronym.

But this time there's a difference: WiFi is already being installed, with 15,000 locations going live across Europe by year-end, being championed by an unlikely combination of coffee shop owners, mobile phone operators and chip manufacturers."
