Wibiki shows platform for trusted WiFi services

Wibiki, a subsidiary of Speedus, is providing a pre-release version of its new platform for trusted WiFi services to a small group of experienced user-testers. The company said its purpose is to create a safe and reliable "WiFi community of communities led by users," and that the introduction of Wibiki is "the first step in a larger project to make WiFi safer and more accessible for more people" in "hot neighborhoods," "hot shopping districts," and "hot towns and cities." Wibiki (short for "wireless ubiquity") said the platform is the "easiest and fastest way to find free WiFi." It is targeting what it calls "the new WiFi community--the growing number of users who depend on WiFi for round the clock connectivity." The mother corporation, Speedus, specializes in wireless broadband and controls wireless spectrum and a portfolio of broadband IP.
