Municipal Wi-Fi Starting To Slide
The push from cities around the country to provide city-funded wireless internet access is starting to stagnate, with plan changes in two more cities.
Cleveland recently rejected pitches from two large providers that would have required the city to buy in to long-term service, and is now refusing to even consider any future bids that utilize the "anchor tenant" model. Now Boston's Wi-Fi plans are looking troubled, as the foundation managing the push reports that it won't happen in 2008.
