Municipal Wi-Fi in OK


Dave Fletcher points out that Oklahoma City is building a 400 square mile Wi-Fi network at the cost of $78 million. As Dave says "Wow!" What's sad is that this is just for public safety--no citizen access as far as I can tell. Even if it were, they' still wouldn't be able to do any interesting broadband projects that involve significant bandwidth, such as video. Utopia opponents were always saying "Wi-Fi is cheaper and will obsolete fiber." This proves them wrong.
