Is City-Wide Wi-Fi a Dead Idea?

Valur Re:Philadelphia (259 comments)

Actually it's still up.

http://wirelessphiladelphia.org/about_wireless.cfm

About a month after the shutdown, it was turned into an open/free network with no tech support or guarantees. Turns out that it's a lot cheaper to run a network when all you have to do is keep it up and not support the end users, collect payment, process signups, etc. I like it this way better. What EarthLink was running only cost a little less than Comcast and Verizon, so I didn't see much point to it.
