Ma Bell was down last night in our neighbourhood, so my neighbour and I (he armed with his Compaq notebook, me with my iBook) walked around our street and found 5 open wifi networks.

Sadly, last night's outage helped me determine that my neighbours use Sympatico and not Rogers.

The huge Sam's the Record Man just a few steps north of Dundas on Yonge has free wifi advertised and open seating inside. I haven't used it, but have seen many people with their own laptops inside...

Does anyone know if there is a wireless signal on the actual Via trains? Because I read somewhere on their site that they do...

Are these different cars on the same trip? Try sitting in coach near to Via1.

Yep, different cars on the same trip. I'm pretty sure that they're going to be using some sort of authorization scheme which will stop non-Via 1 customers from leaching the service.

Before I left my flat in London, we were stealing (err, sharing) wireless with a few mates who lived in a unit three floors down. Couldn't get over the fact that the signal went through so much concrete. Any chance you live close to any of those blokes to do the same?
