Citywide Wi-Fi Moves Forward In New Orleans, Philly

A plan to develop a citywide wireless network is moving forward in New Orleans and Philadelphia. The New Orleans City Council as well as Philadelphia mayor John Street gave their consent to begin the project, which will be managed by EarthLink. The company said access to the New Orleans network at speeds of up to 300 Kbps will be offered for free but customers wanting speeds of up to 1 Mbps willl need to pay a fee. Both networks will be open, which means rival providers are free to offer service.
