AcadianaFuture: Wi-Fi pops up in the darnedest places - The Daily Advertiser

“Our demographic is 18 to 26,” said Owen Thompson, supervisor of the Krystal on West Congress Street. “Let’s face it. This a very astute computer group.”In August, Wi-Fi became something more.“When the hurricanes came, I put it on our sign,” Thompson said, “because all the displaced people needed a way to check their e-mails without being charged for it.”Some days, Thompson said, he would look out on a dining room dotted with laptop computers. And sometimes, the wireless surfing started before the dining room did. Krystal has 24-hour drive-in service, but the dining room opens at 6 a.m. Thompson saw people pull into the parking lot, within range of Krystal’s Wi-Fi, to use their laptops inside their cars.“That’s great,” Thompson said. “We were able to help.”Krystal is part of a trend that is pushing free wireless Internet access beyond the Internet coffee houses that were the first step away from the confinement imposed by desktop and dial-up.The trend seems likely to continue. Computer shoppers will have a hard time finding a new laptop, even in the $700 to $800 range, that can’t handle both the “b” and “g” wireless standards. Broadband access via cable and DSL modems is getting faster. - more available
