The wiki pages for the Top 10 locations (singles and grouped) have been reviewed for the 32 counties that currently have dedicated pages for hotspots.

The site that was replaced still has a page dedicated to it but is 'static' meaning it doesn't need monthly maintenance except for the addition of new informational links. These are preceded with a negative (-) sign.
