Coming Soon: City-Wide WiFi


Posted by Hector Martinez Categories: Wireless / WiFi


WiFi  I wish I lived near Philadelphia again, and I don’t mean just for the cheesesteak.  It seems that city officials are gearing up some $10 million to install a city-wide WiFi network that will be either free or “very low cost.”  Other cities have already launched similar, but more limited offerings.  As with any good development, this CNN article makes sure the “naysayer” voices his objections.  Derek Kerton, founder of a wireless consulting firm, argues that a city-wide WiFi would interfere with other local WiFi spots and frequencies from items like microwaves, baby monitors, and cordless phones.  I guess time will tell, but I have more faith that things can iron themselves out over time.
