New Zealand’s RoamAD has a metropolitan Wi-Fi system that’s been available for years: The uptake has been relatively slow outside of local markets, but the announcement today means that it could finally penetrate the European market.
RoamAD used to employ all Wi-Fi channels simultaneously in its system for better throughput and coverage; now they have an ecosystem of mesh access points and specialized front-end units, including one designed for vehicles passing by at high speeds.
The European reseller, HiTel Italia, expects to announce a metropolitan customer within 30 days.
