EarthLink to deploy Wi-Fi for Philadelphia
The City of Philadelphia has selected EarthLink out of 12 other suitors to deploy a citywide broadband wireless network using Wi-Fi technology. It is expected to be the largest municipal Wi-Fi network in the United States, EarthLink said. Philadelphia, the fifth largest city in the United States, will be blanketed by Wi-Fi by the fourth quarter of 2006. To cover the city of 349 square kilometres, EarthLink will deploy a wireless mesh network.
