Silicon Valley Wireless Project Moves Forward

The Wireless Silicon Valley Task Force has chosen Silicon Valley Metro Connect to build and run a wireless network that will stretch over 1,500 square miles of the region. Metro Connect is a consortium involving Cisco Systems and IBM. The project, however, still requires the approval of individual municipalities before the construction of the network can begin. It aims to provide free access to basic broadband Internet service but users wanting other features like Internet-based phone calls or streaming video will be charged a fee.
