Municipal Wi-Fi Starting To Slide

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.
