Free Wireless Internet in St Gallen?

I just read something about free wireless being available in St Gallen. Is anybody familiar with this? What's the catch? Surely there must be some cost involved. What about transmission rates? Is it slowwwwww?

Re: Free Wireless Internet in St Gallen?

Yes, that's it. Upon further research, it seems that the "catch" is that one has to buy a router from the organization. Is this a fact? If so, they probably provide a "free" access code to use the system. Otherwise, any router should work fine.

Any additional details?

no strings attached, but my advice is that any browsing and email transmission is done using HTTPS/SSL (eavesdropping) and avoid online bank/credit card transactions whenever possible.
