I'm in Whistler, British Columbia, for a working ski vacation (page layout for about 12 hours a day, a few hours of skiing with my fiancee and her brother), and found a great Internet cafe, Jody's Internet Services. Whistler Village, at the base of Whistler-Blackcomb ski area, has at least five Internet cafes that I've counted. Jody himself offers a variety of services, as well as a couple dozen machines. The cafe by itself isn' t the story, but rather that I walked in, started chatting with Jody and a colleague of his at Findwhistler.com, and found their shared interest in wireless networking.
Whistler doesn't yet have Wi-Fi, although it's a logical place. The village lies in a bowl, and there is fiber optic running from Vancouver to the local central office. Jody has 4 Mbps DSL running to his cafe, and DSL is widely available because of the short distance to the c.o. Something big is about to happen here, where Wi-Fi would become a shared resource and in which various businesses will plug into different aspects, such as bringing Wi-Fi to a condo complex or other businesses.
The top of Whistler has a cell tower; is Wi-Fi far behind?
