well my experience in Bryant park, which has been wifi by google
for a while is high latency. you can surf web pages okay but ssh
is 1 to 20 seconds per keystroke, can't work there...

I emailed the support staff about giving priority to port 22
and got a reply it sounded like a good idea... but I never
got confirmation that the powers agreed; prob some technical
(abuse) issue with that type of QOS.

anyway there are lots of free spots. pick your favorite coffee shop
and you have a 35% chance of free gateway. :-}
