Baltimore will soon have free Wi-Fi throughout the city, and it will start on the west side of downtown under a plan being formulated by a Maryland businessman.
The art of the witty wifi network name has largely gone unrecognized–until now.
The Baltimore Convention Center used to have one of those exceedingly irritating wifi schemes, in which the center’s wireless provider blocked all other signals while charging exorbitant amounts for people to get online. Now that company is facing an exorbitant fine of its own–because it turns out that blocking wifi like that is against the law. Poetic justice!
