hi there
in my halls of residence in wellington we have a wireless signal, vistagate.
its unsecured but comes up with "bad host" error when you try to use it.
i know it costs, and would be interested in checking the prices out/speeds of the wireless.

anyone had any experiences with this service?

Depends entirely on the location. Vistagate simply provide a hotspot service, it's up to the location as to how they charge for it.

Just for anyone reading this, The last time I encountered vistagate it was not upto vistagate to get the net connection installed, They are just a software product to make a hotspot.

Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated
