Wireless in Foster City

Foster City wifiYesterday, Foster City rolled out free city-wide Wi-Fi (supported by ads) provided by MetroFi. This makes Foster City the sixth city in the Bay Area to integrate the MetroFi program.

I was made aware of this yesterday when I saw this flyer (pictured) posted on the elevator at my office in Foster City. Alas, I missed the celebrations that accompanied the roll-out yesterday afternoon (darn, missed a free lunch).

I can’t wait to bring my laptop to work with me sometime so I can sit at the waterfront, eat my lunch… and blog.

    That’s great! I keep wondering though–is it bad for your health? Like, with all those internet wavelength thingies running right through you.

    Good luck getting “free Wi-fi.” I live in Foster City and bought the Metrofi recommended “Buffalo high power ethernet converter” I GET NO SIGNAL AT ALL! I do get all my neighbors so, I know it is working. They recommended I buy some other high power adapter. How much do I have to spend until it is free?

    CORRECTION: After I experimented, I found out that I can get a signal now. Only if I put my ethernet converter out on my balcony though.
