The games supposedly has the best Wifi network in the world. Quite what best means has not been explained. However, you're not allowed to set up a MiFi network. Why I'm not sure, but I suspect it's to protect press photographers so they can get their pics out on the net to websites faster than you.

To expand on patchgrabber, what if a person activates their wi-fi tethering device OUTSIDE the Olympics are, but still within reach of the receiver. Is that violating their rules?

I'm thinking they don't want people streaming things, posting things to blogs live, as it causes networks to not have the information first

I don't see this as being the reason. I can take a vid from my phone and as long as I have a data connection it posts directly to a social media account. 3G isn't banned, so I could still vid and stream live events.

Magickrat said it best. Read this.

Why should any WiFi signal be illegal or prohibited?

@nettech: I was using the term "illegal" from the caption of the post. But why ban wireless hotspots? What possible good reason could they have for this?

"How do they know what is "illegal," if I use my phone as a wi-fi hotspot, is that illegal too?"

They prohibited, among other things:

"Personal/private wireless access points and 3G hubs (smart devices such as Android phones, iPhone
and tablets are permitted inside venues, but must not be used as wireless access points to connect multiple devices)"

See document here.

They are not "Illegal" they are "prohibited".

Link: What Are You? The Wi-Fi Police? [Pic] [Rate Link] - This guy works at the Olympic Village. He walks around looking for illegal wi-fi signals and kills them with this gun.
