Completely fabricated 3GSM conspiracy story

7 Euros for 30 mins of WiFi???? 70 Euros for 300 minutes? What planet are these guys on? Blatant profiteering or just simple stupidity?

... or did the GSMA have a quiet word & tell Kubi Wireless to treble the normal prices, in case Viviane Reding dropped in. "See, cellular data charges aren't that high, after all! No need to regulate them at all, we're already competitively priced".

The funniest thing was that the venue's WiFi touts tried to persuade exhibitors to turn off their own WLANs, without realising that half of them were demoing stuff like VCC.....

Full marks to T-Mobile, Microsoft et al for sticking two fingers up to the Fira & giving free WiFi to people in their tents/suites. Let's see more of it next year.

Ridiculous, isn't it? Telefonica (at my hotel) was a bit cheaper at 6 euro per hour. I preferred my GPRS connection..
