www.freewifi.net.nz Doesn't appear to have much especially with regards to the Hawkes Bay region. I would have thought McDonalds would be listed (assuming that they do have free wifi as I am yet to try).
Would appreciate all the free wifi hotspots in NZ being listed on purpose built directory http://www.freewifi.net.nz
Can list/drill down to suburbs.
Great to see someone working on this, so I'm almost reluctant to mention some minor niggles with the site:
1. The suburb in Auckland is called “Eden Terrace”, not “Edent Terrace”
2. If I search for “wi-fi” in “Edent Terrace” I get 0 results, so I expand my search and search for “wi-fi” in Auckland, then I get:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method allCategorySeoUpdater::capitalize() in /home/rachel/public_html/wp-content/plugins/all-category-seo-updater/php/allCategorySeoUpdater.class.php on line 539
I think there is a need for something like http://www.freewifi.net.nz but there could be a difficulty in getting a critical mass of sites listed before people start using it and cafe owners and others see the value of listing in it.... a sort of chicken or the egg scenario.
