Chicago to offer citiwide Wi-fi?!

Saw this article over at CNN.com. Way to go Chicago!

The nationwide rush to go wireless appears poised to extend to its biggest city yet. Chicago is launching an effort to offer wireless broadband, city officials said Friday, jumping on the Wi-Fi bandwagon as similar initiatives proceed in Philadelphia, San Francisco and smaller cities.

Awesome. Now if they can just get it done before I move within the city limits!

One thought on “Chicago to offer citiwide Wi-fi?!”

  1. I saw this story on Headline News this morning. The last line of the brrreeeport was, “No word on how much signing up for the wireless service will cost.”

    I thought: “Ha!” That must have been the HN editors who added that line. No self-respecting wireless provider would think about charging for the service at this point unless it was offering some sort of special function/content/etc.

    If you enter this industry, you pretty much have to leave behind the subscription revenue model.
