So it's free? How does that work?
The costs for the Internet connections and wireless equipment are paid for by the hotspot venues, or sponsors. There's no cost to users who want to use the network, and there are no ads on our community pages.
What do I need to get online?
To use the WirelessToronto network, you need any WiFi-compatible laptop or PDA, and you need to be at one of our hotspots. (You can find our hotspot list here).
What is the SSID (network name) for the Wireless Toronto hotspots?
All Wireless Toronto hotspots use the SSID wirelesstoronto.
Are wireless connections secure?
Not really. If you're sending or receiving any data that you'd prefer others not see, you should use secure (encrypted) methods. Email and web sessions are particularly at risk, especially passwords. If your email account supports it, you should use a secure (HTTPS) web login, or secure (POP-S or IMAPS and SMTP/TLS) email client login.
When are you going to have a hotspot at <my favourite place>?
Sooner if you can help us pitch them on the idea. You can contact us to suggest a possible venue using our online form or you can email email@example.com.
I have an idea for how to make the network better -- who should I contact?
We'd love to hear it! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
