Can anyone find the article on OzIT's appallingly dysfunctional site?
The dead trees version is on p. 35, beneath Karen Dearne's expose of
the idiocy in the AML-CTFR legislation.
It's a reprint of a Financial Times article, key sentences:
"The San Francisco scheme ... fell apart last week after ISP
Earthlink said it was pulling out of a contract to build the city's
WiFi network ... [after the city declined to be an anchor tenant and
"Separately, Chicago shelved its plans to provide WiFi coverage over
the city's 228 square miles, saying it would require significant
public financing and that demand was declining [i.e. someone's
installing Wimax there, and they hope that will work]".
