City Wi-Fi Networks

WSJ writes:

Cities and small localities across the country have started offering their residents cheap or even free access to the Internet either because their areas aren’t reached by regional telecom providers or because the available offerings in their areas are too pricey.

More than 50 municipalities around the country have already built such systems, and a similar number are at some stage in the process, including Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and Houston, according to Esme Vos, founder of the Web site http://www.muniwireless.com, which tracks such projects nationally. By 2010, ABI Research forecasts a $1.2 billion market for the wireless technology used in the city systems.
