City-Wide WiFi

Monday, July 09, 2007

The city of Riverside is launching a city-wide wireless internet network tomorrow. The network is run by AT&T, and has been under a "test" period in certain neighborhoods for several weeks now. The Press Enterprise has a piece about it here. Here's the money quote:
AT&T and its partner, MetroFi, will own and operate the Riverside network. MetroFi is supplying the free service, which is supported by advertising. AT and T is providing a higher-speed service for which customers must buy a $7.99 day pass or $15.99 weekly pass.
That the service is supported by advertising
isn't good, and there's no way I'll ever pay $16 for a week's worth of it. Still, it's pretty cool.
