TECHNOLOGY SPECTATOR: Tackling a wi-fi roadblock

As commuters increasingly rely on the daily grind to get ahead with work, is there a case for the major telcos to step in and roll out wi-fi across Australia’s transport networks?

Australia’s love affair with technology is perhaps never better highlighted than during the daily commute and it's pretty unusual not to see people buried in their tablets, phones or readers during their trip to and from work. They’re shooting off emails, checking their Facebook pages, reading the news – anything to distract their attention from the daily grind.
