Intel Kicks off Asia-Pacificís Top 10 Wireless Hotspots Poll
Posted on 4-Oct-2005 10:15 | Tags Filed under: News



Wi-Fi hotspots have evolved from points of convenience to places of experience. Recognising this, Intel invites notebook PC users to nominate their favourite places to experience wireless connectivity in the Asia-Pacific region. Users are invited to select the 10 wireless hotspots out of 36 nominations. The five participants whose top hotspot selections are closest to matching the regionís top ranking places will win a travel voucher worth US$1,000.

The poll will be open from 3 October until 24 October 2005. The winners of the competition and the survey results will be announced on 8 November 2005.

Through this survey, Intel aims to inform leisure and business travelers alike to quickly and easily find the best places to get online and experience the fun and convenience of mobility. In addition, the survey will share insights about how notebook users are using notebooks and what is important to them.

Analyst firm IDC estimates that by the end of 2005 there will be more than 130,000 wireless hotspots worldwide, some of them in the most unexpected places. Wireless hotspots are popping up in places sometimes even without you knowing. There are already 11 commercial airlines that offer or plan to offer Connexion by Boeing in-flight wireless internet access service, which is currently available on more than 100 routes daily to and from the U.S. and international destinations. There are also more than 6,000 McDonaldís restaurants around the world offering wireless internet connection.
