"Still playing catch-up on my blog reading after the vacation. Next year? WiFi."

WARNING - geeky response follows:

Maybe by next year, the problem will be less severe, in the same way that eventually the band width issue got addressed -- but WiFi is only as good as the local access to a network. It's basically the same as your cell phone. It works great, as long as you don't need it wherever you are.

On Cape Cod, the WiFi "hot spots" might be few and far between, and then you'll be crying for good ol' fashioned dial up.

Then again, if you can find a Starbucks anywhere on the Cape, supposedly they are WiFi friendly everywhere.

For what it's worth...



The library in Chatham is now WiFi friendly. I like that library and will happily blog from there any time. And although there are fortunately no Starbucks in town, one night I saw a kid using his laptop at one of the tables outside Monomoy Coffee. I don't know if he was online but if there's a hot spot right there then I'm really golden!

Makes sense now that I think about it that there would be WiFi in Chatham. All those New York types on their "vacations" simply cannot be disconnected from their financial schemi--er, planning clients. So naturally Chatham, and likely Hyannis and Wellfleet and Truro are hot spots.

I wouldn't speculate on Route 6A though.
