Dwight Silverman lets us know that the city of Houston has lit up the downtown area with free WiFi.  It’s a pilot program so no guarantee it will be around forever or stay free but it utilizes excess bandwidth from all the wireless parking meters which is pretty cool.  There is an Access Houston web site that details exactly where the hotspots are located, most are in the highly trafficed areas near local attractions.  Check it out and let us know how you find the free WiFi and how the bandwidth works for you.
