The World's First Free Wireless Nation

The Polynesian Island of Niue has launched the world's first free nation-wide WiFi Internet access service, available to residents and tourists.

"This new free wireless service which can be accessed by all Niue residents, tourists, government offices and business travelers, is being provided at no cost to the public or local government... A substantial portion of Niue's tourism comes from visiting yacht traffic during the non-cyclone season. Yachts with onboard computer equipment with WiFi cards and external antennas will be able to park in the harbor and access full Internet services from their vessels as an open node, also free of charge."
