Kordia Metro WiFi

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 9-Sep-2007 20:24

The state owned enterprise (read your tax dollars at work) Kordia launched a metropolitan Wi-Fi service in New Zealand called Kordia Metro WiFi.

While the press release says the service is avaialble in Auckland and Taupo only, their coverage maps lists Auckland, Wellington, Taupo, Hamilton, Dunedin, Invercargill and Queenstown... Who do we believe?

Then I tried to create an account. You enter the information requested (name, family name, email address, password, plan) and instead of having your account created you receive another page with errors - claiming you have not entered information (password hint, reason for using and where you are from) in fields that did not exist in the first form. Did anyone test their site before going live?

And when you finally create your account... Try loging in! You can't because your browser redirects to a 404 (not found).

C'mon folks, you succeeded in making it hard for users!
