While most public hotspots around the country only support the 802.11b (11 megabit per second) speed, the new FirePlanet hotspots can now support both 802.11b and 802.11g (54 megabits per second) clients. This break from slower public hotspot promise much higher bandwidth and greater user capacity. In addition to the greater speed, the new hardware being used supports QoS (quality of service applications) to better deliver multimedia streams such as music, video, and conferencing services to the wireless users, and VPN support for business users.
