Minneapolis to Go Wireless

While there are already 300 to 400 Internet hot spots operating in the city, Minneapolis looks to make wi-fi ubiquitous to better serve both its citizens and its services.

The city also wanted to replace expensive cellular radio communications used by police cars with a cheaper and faster wireless data network. There also was a desire to provide broadband to an estimated 10 to 15 percent of the city’s population that either isn’t served by high-speed Internet access or can’t afford it.

While the access won’t be free, unfortunately, it may be a much cheaper (and faster) alternative for many seeking faster access than dial-up provides.
