For the longest time, I've never been able to get OneZone (Toronto's downtown WiFi network) to work for me... with any device, regardless of whether it was a WiFi phone or my laptop. It seems that this is a pretty common experience, with nobody I know being able to actually use it.
Well, this morning I'm sitting in the Starbucks at Queen and John, and posting this using OneZone... it's kind of slow, but at least it's working. :-) Now I'm getting excited about this beginning to actually start working quickly/etc.
That said, I still think I'd rather just put an HSPA card in my laptop, once we get not-so-usurious data (and data roaming) prices.
