    Nice initiative James!
    I started a Grazr where all the wifi hotspot maps can come together: http://grazr.com/read/fzelders/bfda8de1

  2. James Corbett Says:

    That’s excellent, thanks Fred. I’ve copied your grazr to my account 馃檪

    Great idea. Hope to avail of it in my travels.
    Don’t forget the public libraries. There are probably too many to show, but they are providing a great wifi service.
    I’m not sure if there is full national penetration yet but it is certainly in most if not all of the Dublin libraries.

  4. James Corbett Says:

    Thanks P贸l贸, I’m going to check out my own public library next week to see if they have a hotspot.

  5. Cronan Says:

    Are these hotspots on this map free or do they have to be paid for to access them?

  6. James Corbett Says:

    A large number of the hotspots are free Cronan. As for FON and BT Openzone hotspots that depends on your subscriptions levels

    James just thought I’d mention that Google Maps now has a search option to allow search for “user created content”. If you search for Irish wifi then this map comes top of the list.
    It’ll be interesting to find out a bit more about the search method as I’d expect alot of geo-spam now. User created kml showing locations of viagra and “enlargers” will be commonplace I predict.

  8. James Corbett Says:

    Hmm, I’m not seeing that Will. Are you searching under maps.google.com or maps.google.co.uk? When I search under the .com address for “irish wifi”, what I get is a list of American results starting with McMullan’s Irish Pub. So then I click on the new ‘Community maps for Irish wifi’ option above the list which allows me to perform the search again while restricting the results to user-generated content. But when I do that my results don’t seem to have changed much and I don’t see our community map among them. Am I doing something wrong?

    Like the comment made by Will, you now see a increase in UGC on Google Maps. Can’t believe what is already on there. Good initiative.
