So how cool is this concept! Here is the link to an article I found this evening regarding a proposed recommendation to the mayor of Boston. Non-profit to run Wi-Fi for Boston.
In summary, a task force believes that Boston will be best served by finding either an existing or new non-profit to run and manage a public wi-fi system for the city. The concept is simple, a non-profit can keep the wi-fi network working in the best interest of the public and not special interest groups. The non-profit will be tasked with raising $16-20 Million for the network that will cover approximately 49 square miles.
