Smart Telecom launched a Wi-Fi network covering the city of Cork, Ireland: The network covers a 1.5 square kilometer area. The service is initially free but very soon will require payment for access. It is apparently a mesh network but it’s not clear who the vendor is. Smart Telecom said it is talking with four city councils in the country about building similar networks in other cities.
Smart Telecom seems to be quite aggressive recently in its approach to the Irish market. It offers some pay phones, at least around town in Dublin, and it recently started offering DSL service in Dublin. Smart also offers local phone service.
