The StarTribune reports that the city of minneapolis is hearing proposals to turn the city into one giant wireless hotspot. They say the end user could log in anytime and anywhere for somewhere between $18 and $24 per month.
I have a few questions about the service, namely, would the monthly fee be per computer, or per user? Also, the article says that, “the city hopes to incorporate into it all Internet hot spots already operated by private businesses such as coffee shops”. Is the implication that those “free” hotspots will go away? (This might piss off a few people.)
Overall, this is a fascinating prospect, but I want to hear a few more details before I get really excited.
