Why Fi (part II)

Boston will tap a nonprofit corporation to blanket the city with “open access” wireless Internet connections, under a plan to be unveiled today by Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

Hm… It seems the non-profit will create the infrastructure, but the actual connection to the internet will still be through third parties, most likely ‘for profits’. Still, it is an interesting idea that the city will take on the cost of the infrastructure, so access should be able to be provided for a much lower price. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
