(WiFi) Philly's WiFi Network Gets City OK
(Reuters - May 24, 2007)
The City of Philadelphia has signed off on Earthlink's Proof of Concept network which paves the way for city-wide build out.  Earthlink plans on having the entire city live by late 2007.  This next step is critical to the success of not only Philadephia's network but the municipal wireless movement happening nationally.  Earthlink recently announced it will not take on any new network construction for the time being.  Earthlink is also building networks in several other cities.  With so much at stake for Earthlink, as well as public WiFi, it appears they want to focus on doing these current jobs successfully before making future commitments.
