This site is devoted to municipal wireless broadband projects worldwide that are funded or supported by cities and towns. These range from downtown hotzones to city- and county-wide wireless broadband networks. Although we often use the word “city”, rural municipalities receive equal coverage because they are leading the fight for affordable, fast, universal access to the Internet.
We included a category called Community Wireless to highlight wireless projects organized and run by local residents, with or without support from the municipality. These grassroots initiatives — run by volunteers — force local and regional governments to remove barriers to affordable wireless (and wired) broadband access. Where governments have been too slow and risk-averse, these groups unwire their communities with do-it-yourself networks. We also write about wireless technologies (Wi-Fi and WiMAX) and applications that take advantage of wireless access.
We would like to hear from you about upcoming projects. Please send your news (as well as corrections) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
