Requires a sign-in (thus less convenient than existing hotspots),
heavily filtered (SSH does not even work), not much of an improvement
(insofar as anyone wants to use WiFi outdoors, it already "bled" from
coffeeshops and restaurants).

The telephony & "triple-play" aspect is interesting, but I saw no signs
of it the first (and last) time I signed-on experimentally.
