SINCE LAST week the coastal city of Rosario, Argentina's second largest city and home of about a million people is among the growing club of World cities with free municipal Wi-Fi access.
So when you hit this nice city located 300Km or 187 miles NW from Buenos Aires, you could use the free Municipal Wi-Fi service to read the INQ. It should be noted however that the service is initially available on a VERY small section of Rosario city. Anyhow, it is expected that the city government will extend it to eventually cover most of it.
This service was inaugurated last week by city mayor Miguel Lifschitz. It features "filtered access" to prevent "illegal use" of the network - so we suspect that means P2P and porn will be somewhat limited-, and is free to anyone with an e-mail address, you only have to point your Notebook/PDA/Smartphone to the network “MR_GRATUITA” if it shows up in your hotspot finder.
