Wi-Fi, afloat on a boat

Altough not very different then some of the more off-shore Wi-Fi initiatives in the (at least) US, I really like this example of ubiquitous wireless internet in India. Let’s see if we can make something like that happen in, let’s say, the Med.
“A lake in North India famous for its tourist houseboats has become one large wireless hot spot. A Times of India report called Lake Dal in the state of Kashmir “the first Wi-Fi enabled lake in the country, and perhaps the world”. Tourists flock to the picturesque lake for its rustic tranquility, but those who prefer to stay connected can now also browse the Web and check email while afloat on native houseboats, said the report.”
