Unwired cities movement continues – Earthlink says it is going to unwire the City of Milpitas. The Wi-Fi mesh network will cover about 6.5 square miles, and will basically be like most other muni networks. While businesses and consumers will pay some amount of money to access the network, the City employees will also be able to access the network. Not sure who is providing the gear, but given the past record of Earthlink deployments, it must be Tropos Networks. As part of the deal, other access providers can use the network as well.
