The hype of the 802.11 standard - the availability of a technology that makes use of unlicensed spectrum to deliver broadband (wireless) access to the Internet - sounds like a great opportunity for new players - especially following the disappointing rollout of DSL and clouded promise of 3G wireless.

The fact is 802.11 is a technology on a journey to find itself and while we’ve seen successful applications on the enterprise scale, public access gateways have been slow to come on board and to turn a profit.
