city of a thousand broken access points

Auckland seems to have wifi access points all over the central business district. But for the most part they don't seem to work. They seem either charge-based or needing-a-login-even-though-not-charging, and they all seem screwed up in that my equipment either can't associate to them, or when it does associate to them, it doesn't get an IP address via DHCP.

What kind of madness is this? that the equipment is deployed and then apparently neglected so much by all involved that it doesn't work enough to generate revenue...
