WanderPod brings Wi-Fi anywhere
Posted: 15-Oct-2004 [Source: Wired News]

[WanderPort takes the Internet to places it has never gone before. The WanderPod trailer provided Wi-Fi connectivity via satellite for the crew of SpaceShipOne during its successful run at the Ansari X Prize.]

By Dan Brekke -- "Dennis Stacey had one of the best seats at the Ansari X Prize launches, right alongside the taxiway where Burt Rutan's SpaceShipOne rolled out to make history earlier this month. But the Montreal entrepreneur was at California's Mojave Airport not to catch a space launch, but to prove that he can bring Internet access to people wherever they happen to be.

Stacey, 30, is CEO of WanderPort Wireless, a 2-year old firm that's established itself as a provider of Wi-Fi hot spots in business, boutique and luxury hotels in Canada and the United States. Now Stacey and his 15-person firm want to take wireless connectivity where it's never gone before.

WanderPort sent a small crew to Mojave to unveil the WanderPod, a rolling Wi-Fi hot spot consisting of a small trailer triked out with a diesel generator, an antenna, juiced-up access-point hardware and a satellite dish that serves as a broadband data link. The target market: anyone who needs to get on the net from remote locations or places where infrastructure has been knocked out."
