Could We Be Going Wireless?
Finally, my dreams are coming true! I just need a laptop...
For more than a year, Akron's chief technology officer, Rick Leu, talked with companies about installing a citywide wireless network that would allow anybody to plug into the Internet without actually plugging into a wall.Whoa, whoa, whoa... our what? Chief technology officer? What the hell is that?
Akron has chosen NeoReach, a subsidiary of MobilePro Corp. of Maryland, to install a pilot wireless network near Fulton International Airport. The test area will serve city workers and could become the seed for a citywide network open to residents and businesses.It's like a glimmer of hope for my MoBlogging aspirations!
NeoReach also has initiated a pilot program in Cuyahoga Falls. If both pilots are taken citywide with NeoReach, residents could have access to the Internet from either city with the same account.[...]
Akron will receive free access for city business in exchange for allowing the network's use of its ``vertical assets'' -- tall things such as buildings and light poles where NeoReach can stick on antennas.
