    I have spent the last two weeks travelling around Vietnam and found it to be an eye-opening experience. One of the things it has made me more aware of is the challenges that developing nations face when compared to life at home. I am writing this article from the QANTAS Club in Singapore and it is amazing the difference between these two countries that are separated by only a 90-minute flight.
    The definition of a third-world country is a nation that is underdeveloped in terms of their economy or level of industrialization, globalization, standard of living, health, or education. However, I think that the definition should be extended to cover access to the Internet, as the Internet has become a key resource for the advancement of a country. Although Vietnam is not classified as a third-world country, what I found interesting while I was travelling through Vietnam was that free Wi-Fi access was more accessible then in my home town of Brisbane in Australia. Is your city third world like or does it have ready access to free Internet.

    Free WiFi works against a developed nation - ALL developed nations have internet access that is PAID for - and giving it away - is a costly adventure!! I live in Atlanta - and free WiFi is fairly easy to find - the airport is a free zone and now - even the local Taco Bells and McDOnalds offer free WiFi. (If I even need internet access at McDonalds or Taco Bell - please shoot me in the head!!:)) I think/hope/pray that one day free WiFi goes away!! How about ONE monthly charge - from ONE company - for free access to the internet - anywhere on earth????? We will not get there for FREE - who will do the maintenance, new installs, accident cleanup? PLEASE DO NOT say the government – you DO NOT want them on your WiFi!!!!
