Talk:Proposed features/Inet access old

This proposals seems unfinished and I'd say it's a duplicate of the already much better worked out hotspot. Why not work on the hotspot proposal instead of adding a new one to make confusion perfect. In fact, to me this proposal is a waste of time - Ulfl 02:29, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

  • It's not unfinished - the web access point can be completely described with the two tags shown
  • It's not a duplicate of hotspot, since that covers wireless access and not public terminals
  • It's more useful than hotspot, since public computer rooms are permanent features that can be added to the map, as opposed to wifi hotspots which appear and disappear within months as people move houses or cafe management changes
  • Hotspot isn't a well-formatted proposal either, as it uses the deprecated class= tag as a price tag, contributing to the confusion over how to mark free/paid things

I would think this should be an amenity=* value. --Hawke 21:42, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Can this be used for LAN houses? A place where you can go in an access internet for a while. I found this useful when I was backpacking in both Europe and Brazil, and long time ago, I was part of a crew organizing one in Norway. It can be either amenity=internet access or amenity=lan --Skippern 18:38, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
