Minneapolis Goes Wi-Fi, With WiMax To Follow

Minneapolis aims to create a citywide wireless network with the help of BelAir Networks and US Internet. Minneapolis Mayor R. T. Rybak said the city “has chosen both a business model and a technology solution that ensure immediate, ongoing, and sustainable benefits.” Under the plan, the suppliers will develop a 54-squre-mile network that will initially support WiFi and can be be upgraded to WiMax and 3G later. According to BelAir spokeswoman Sheila Burpee Duncan, a one-mile-square WiFi pilot network is now operating in the city.
