But, soft! What light through yonder Windows breaks? Windows Mobile that is, as historic Stratford-on-Avon goes not only digital, but unwired to boot.
With wireless hotspots, provided by British Telecom, throughout, Stratford-on-Avon has essentially created a fully connected wireless touris..er..town. Visitors can rent networked PDAs for about $14.00 US per day, and take advantage of online interactive maps and attraction guides, and go on their own guided walking tours.
No word on whether one can use one’s own wifi-enabled equipment with the Stratford-on-Avon network.
“Now all the world’s a wi-fi stage as far as this town is concerned. We are sure that the many tourists who like to visit Stratford from across the globe will appreciate how much easier it will be to hit the literary hotspots using the latest technology as your guide,” said Chris Clark, chief executive of BT Wireless Broadband.
So give me my robe, put on my crown; I have immortal longings in me ..and a PDA in hand.
