How is ShakaNet's Free WiFi service in (South) Waikiki?

I notice that ShakaNet provides free WiFi to a large area of South Waikiki (closest to Kapiolani Park). Anyone use this service and have feedback?

I didn't even know about this.

I do believe I saw the service when I logged in last Monday. However, I think Hyatt waived the fee for tmobile wireless after the earthquake and I was able to connect through to it, since the signal was stronger.

I recall last time I stayed at Marriott Waikiki it would show ShakaNet as available, but low signal and difficult to connect. I was about 14th floor at the time.

Would certainly love to use it rather than pay $11 a day for Marriott's WiFi...
Brian/\/\ You definitely should not live in Denver. Cold here. And snowy. And cold. Really, it's miserable. Just stay away.

Question Ocean Resort?

Anyone have any success with Shakanet free in the Ocean Resort Hotel? I've used Shakanet paid there but it was only available in a small corner of the lobby and the signal was fairly weak. The hotel is in the Shakanet wireless Waikiki zone, however. Thanks.
