After quite a debate Mayor John F. Street on Thursday signed off on a plan to build a network to provide wireless high-speed Internet access throughout Philadelphia.
This is quite an impressive innitiative and I’m really looking forward for the development of these kind of networks as other cities are already into it.
The network will provide free high-speed Internet access in selected areas of Philadelphia, such as parks. Internet Service Providers and community organizations will be able to use the network to sell high-speed Internet access in other areas. The network will enable them to provide that service at the cost of dial-up Internet access. (via BizJournals)
