I noted the other day that Estonia is tops in Wi-Fi, Lithuania is starting to roll out wireless broadband and hotspots, but Latvia was missing from the picture: Now I see it’s all about timing. Lattelekom has 150 hotspots deployed, 75 percent of them in the capital of Riga. This article notes there are 45,000 laptop owners in Latvia but 3,500 being sold each month. The telco will increase the total to 200 during 2005, and add 150 more (or is it 350 more? it’s ambiguous) in 2006.
Costs are roughly US$1.60 per hour or US$16 for 24 hours. Service with a monthly commitment is about $5 per month for a US-cent per minute rate or about US$17.50 per month for unlimited use.
