Wouldn't it be great if you could have WiFi access anywhere anytime? Of course, we're a long way from universal WiFi access for all but there are some networks that are already putting the principle into practice.
Whisher is one of those. Whisher is a small application which logs you on to the Whisher network and gives you free WiFi access where available. Of course, the key here is "where available" which at the moment, isn't many places, although it's not badly served by any means. It relies on users like you sharing your home WiFi internet connection with other users on the Whisher network.
However, you don't lose control of your WiFi network if you join in. All WiFi networks registered through Whisher are protected and the users have full control over who can access them. The principle of this app is superb - by aggregating all WiFi connections people have at home, it is creating the world's biggest free WiFi network. However, you still have to pay to use it - joining doesn't mean you're given free access to other users' networks. However, the more you share, the cheaper it is for you.
Whisher is an innovative solution to creating a universal WiFi network for all and if you're on the move a lot, it could save you a hell of a lot of money and hassle in finding internet access.
