It'd be absolutely spectacular to actually see one of these admittedly ambitious
municipal WiFi projects actually work out every now and then, but instead, we're seeing the nails start to sink into yet another
citywide WiFi coffin. This go 'round, the network blanketing
most of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
is on the verge of sending out its last signals unless the city can devise a plan in short order to take it over from EarthLink, who unsurprisingly
on the double. Unfortunately, we don't have a great feeling about the system's future -- history has a way of forecasting, you know?
