(WiFi) Drexel Taps into Philly's WiFi Network Print E-mail

(The Triangle - June 1, 2007)
Drexel University has reached a one year agreement with Earthlink to give Drexel students free off-campus access to its citywide wireless network.  Students can now go online anywhere in the city's network for free (up to 5 hours a month).  The program is meant to be in addition to traditional home access through DSL or cable modems.  The program will also allow students to access any other Earthlink network being built across the US.  This deal presents an interesting new opportunity for the network.  Large entities such as schools or companies could create deals that allow their students or employees web access outside the office without having to build out their own networks.
