No Freebies For Perth

I don't think it's going to be a huge blow for mobile phone carriers servicing Perth (and probably the rest of Aus) since Wifi hotspots are a bit of a joke here.

Unless you're in MacDonalds, or smack bang in the centre of the CBD, you can pretty much forget it. And using your mobile data service to use VOIP here is too slow, and too expensive.
