Very easy answer! If you bring a thermometer with you, you will wind that the temperature aroudn a hto spot area to be 2-3 degrees higher over a range of 600meters. This is caused by the high frequency produced by the wireless router. *ahem*

Actually, apparently the term was coined up by Nokia a few years back. At least that's what I read off Wiki:

From Wiki:

Wi-Fi hotspots were first proposed by Brett Stewart at the NetWorld+Interop conference in The Moscone Center in San Francisco in August 1993. Stewart did not use the term 'hotspot' but referred to public accessible wireless LANs. Stewart went on to found the companies PLANCOM in 1994 (for Public LAN Communications, which became MobileStar and then the hotspot arm of T-Mobile) and subsequently Wayport in 1996.

The term 'HotSpot' may have first been advanced by Nokia about five years after Stewart first proposed the concept.

All the major hotels are WiFi enabled, with Crowne Plaza being the most expensive for an hour rate.

I recall that most private colleges are WiFi enabled(?) and even St Joseph School (sadly after I left. Then my bringing laptop to school would have come to some use instead for [insert activity] during class).

Someone told me the Waterfront is WiFi enabled but I never bothered. I know for a fact the hotels and cafes in Kuching are WiFi-able.

Two Wi-Fi exist in Kuching
- Free and Prepaid.

As far as I know, Bing Coffee is the only one that offers totally free Wi-Fi.

Segi College, Coffee Bean is up to your own account. They offer wireless connectivity but you need to login through the TM Wireless Hotspot. Either you get the prepaid card or you can use your own exisiting wireless enable account.

So i think there isn't much FREE wi-fi in Kuching unline Miri.
right Ian? lol
