Free, Nation-Wide WiFi

From engadget:

"Entire cities getting free WiFi used to be quite the sensation, but now the real hotness is in connecting up an entire nation. According to IndiaTimes, the government is proposing that all citizens of India receive complimentary 2Mbps internet by 2009 . . . . Unsurprisingly, . . . consumers cheer on the idea, [while] current telecom providers are shaking at the mere thought of all future telephone calls being converted into free VoIP dialogue."

Unthinkable here; only unfettered capitalism might achieve such benisons -- and if it doesn't, they're impossible, of course.
