Swedish broadband provider Glocalnet is set to expand its ‘Glocalzone’ outdoor wireless internet access network to the country’s twenty largest towns by March 2007. Glocalnet, a subsidiary of Norway’s Telenor, says it will provide the service free of charge for its customers, whilst for non-subscribers prices will range from SEK19 (USD2.6) per hour to SEK59 for a full week. Glocalzone underwent a trial period this summer in Linköping, Norrköping and Nyköping, providing encrypted wireless data speeds of up to 1Mbps. ‘With Glocalzone you can sit at a café, on a square or in the park and surf the internet. Previously this was too expensive for individuals. We want everyone to be able to afford a wireless connection," said Glocalnet’s CEO Martin Tiveus in a press release.
