So if the free WiFi access system run by Slingshot/Callplus gets 3 copyright infringement notices Slingshot/Callplus get disconnected from the Internet?

That said, great to see WiMax getting some use at last, I remember when it was proposed thinking "wow, it'll be great when they start putting this technology out there" because of (the reported) speed/coverage area etc. Also, free inner-city WiFi is naturally a good thing anyway.

I thought it was three notices and then you have to go to the special court. Disconnection was only after that if they thought it was required. But if labour gets in they are supposedly dropping the disconnection clause, and will review the whole law again.

freitasm: There are no "ports used for filesharing"... People can set it to anything, so you'd have to block everything...



That shows you my knowledge on p2p. If they have a quota, say 100MB a day per user which is more than enough for email and some browsing, that could get around it. Libraries tend to do that.

Does anybody know if CallPlus are actually trialling new 802.16e WiMAX gear? Or are they just using their existing 802.16d network and claiming it's 4G?

I asked that question on the Slingshot forums and was told that it is using 802.16e WiMax

Speeds, 0.5-6mbit down and 3-4mbit up and latency seems to be around 60 - 90ms
