Toronto Hyrdo Telecom recently launched the initial phase of their OneZone wi-fi service in downtown Toronto. Access is free during the first 6 months but you’ll need to provide a cell phone number if you want to try out the service. The sign up process sends an SMS message with the new user’s username and password.
If you choose not to sign up then Internet access is only available to a small number of select sites:
www.ttc.ca (Toronto Transit Commission)
mto.gov.on.ca (Ministry of Transportation)
toronto.hydro.com (toronto hydro)
thtelecom.cmo (toronto hydro telecom)
www.bot.com (board of trade)
