Does anybody have any information on the Christchurch Wifi Initiative?

I am in the Richmond Area and a new Wifi access point has become available today 14/4/11. The SSID for this network was rather generic two days ago and has now been renamed to "Telecom Free WiFi".

I am aware that Telecom was offering free WiFi after the earthquake but as the earthquake was 7-8 weeks ago at the time of writing this I am surprised to see this service being available now.

Apon connecting there is a General Term and Conditions Page.

Any information regarding the service, how long it will be available and any coverage or intended coverage information would gratefully received.

It appears that Telecom have a) continued this service, and b) been expanding it

Well done and props up Telecom
