Whistler WiFi Moves Forward

Earlier this summer we had the story of how a local cable company was fighting against the decision by folks at the Whistler ski resort to install their own WiFi network. The cable company was working on their own WiFi buildout, and thought that municipally supported WiFi (especially when they didn’t even bid the contract out to the cable company) was unfair. It appears that, so far, this has had little effect on Whistler keeping up its plans, as they’ve announced today that the first phase of the deployment is complete and they’ve got full (fee-based) WiFi to approximately 50% of guest rooms at the resort.
