Eastlink wireless trial

For a while now, I've been noticing wireless hotspots around downtown called "Eastlink WiFi Trial #16" or something like that. I've tried connecting to them, but to no avail. Well, just today, I got an email from eastlink:
Dear EastLink Customer,

EastLink is currently conducting a Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) trial in various locations throughout the Halifax peninsula.

In order for our Wi-Fi trial to be successful, it's important that we receive feedback from our customers. As a valued EastLink High Speed Internet customer, we would like to extend the invitation for you to participate in this innovative trial and provide your feedback to us about the service.

If you have a laptop or PDA that is wireless compatible you can access the service. Since it's in a test phase, the signal could be intermittent and technical support will not be available. Customers should note this connection is not secure and therefore, caution should be exercised when exchanging or accessing personal information.

While there is no cost to you for accessing this service, we request that you provide a response to our brief on-line survey and offer feedback about your experiences. The survey is designed to gather information on who used the service and why (i.e. work, recreation, educational). To view coverage areas, visit http://wifi.eastlink.ca.

Thank you and we hope you will enjoy EastLink's Wi-Fi trial.
