Phase 1 of OneZone, the Toronto Hydro WiFi network was officially launched yesterday. The area of coverage for the current phase is Front Street to Queen and Spadina to Church.
OneZone is free to all users for 6 months and then subscription charges will apply. The rates will be $29/month, $10/day, $5/hour.
If you're in the downtown core and want to take the new network for a spin you'll need to connect to the One Zone_High Speed Internet and enter a cell phone number. Once you've been identified and validated you'll receive a username and password that will be text messaged to your cell phone.
Has anyone used the new network yet? How was the experience? (I'm a little too far north at the moment but will definitely try it out next time I'm within range.)
