Last time we checked in, there were over 5000 Shanghai Wi-Fi hotspots around town here. Now, apparently that number has risen to a whopping 10,000, though there’s a catch. The Wireless City project, which began in 2008, has brought Wi-Fi access to most downtown areas of Shanghai… as long as you’ve either subscribed to or purchased cards from China Telecom and China Mobile. China Mobile charges five cents per minute and China Telecom charges around 50 cents per megabyte. Huh – guess I’ll just stick to the coffee shops I’m used to… at least that’s free.
