Public WiFi Zone in Antigua Guatemala

Public WiFi Zone in Antigua Guatemala

About a month ago I reported that La Antigua Guatemala had become the first digital city in Central America, but I did not get a chance to try out the free public wifi zone available in Antigua’s Main Plaza until now.

Thanks to the iPod Touch I received as birthday present from my sisters, I walked into La Antigua Guatemala’s Plaza Mayor, also known simply as Parque Central, to verify the wireless public Internet access and its speed. I am happy to report that when the wifi zone works, its speed is very good: average 480 Kbits/s and Maximum speed of 692 Kbits/sec. A quick glance at the DNS servers from the wifi access points show the service is provided by Telgua, Guatemala’s telephone land lines monopoly.

I promise to a series about Guatemalan monopolies, if enough people request it.

Below you can see the screen captures taken with the iPod Touch.
