Many months ago we here discussing about the possibility of Wi-Fi
being in competition with 3G.

And as expected it looks like it was just something having not much 
sense.
More and more Telco operators are now developing business models
integrating both technologies  that have different values depending on
your mobile context:

The funny thing is that there is some part of the press insisting on 
the theme 3 vs Wi-Fi:

Maybe at BBC the do not know that Vodafone is going to offer also Wi-Fi 
connectivity
in several EU countries:

15 January 2004
Vodafone Spain

network

commercial agreement under which Vodafone customers will have high
