Submission + - Wi-Fi Mesh Lights Up Mecca for Hajj (itworld.com)

narramissic writes: "The more than 2 million pilgrims who flock to Mecca this week for the Hajj, an annual gathering of Muslims, won't have to disconnect as they take part in several days of religious rituals. A network of about 70 meshed routers from Tropos Networks has been set up to provide free Internet connectivity. Denise Barton, director of marketing at Tropos, believes it is the first public Wi-Fi network set up for the Hajj."
