Mapping WiFi around the world


WeFi aims to generate a comprehensive map of WiFi hot spots around the world. The company site explains:

WeFi is software loaded onto your laptop or mobile device. It enhances your existing WiFi management software with a more powerful connection tool. The WeFi software automatically detects and qualifies all WiFi access points within range and connects you to the spot with the best Internet connection.

Along with the WiFi connection software, users get access to WeFi’s IM service which combines instant messaging with the ability to see where your friends are connected from across the globe.

With over 300, 000 logged WiFi access points, a dynamic world map of the latest additions, and searchable local hot spot maps, WeFi might be on to something here.

According to WeFi CEO, Zur Feldman,

We have the ability to connect one WiFi area to the next seamlessly, as long as they have an overlapping range. You can basically have an experience like a mobile phone experience, because we check and test the hot spots automatically, and we are able to connect you without even noticing.
