Municipal Wi-Fi Gets Backers

Only a short time ago telco operators were quietly pushing for legislation all over the states to prevent municipalities from starting thier own municipal WiFi programs for fear of competition and undercutting thier pricing. Now it seems that they have realized the oppourtunity in front of them and are starting to wake up and partner with cities to roll out municipal WiFi projects. First out of the gate is Google and Earthlink in San Francisco, but there are many more in the pipeline it seems.
