Muni Wireless

Techdirt has a nice post up about an article about Andy Seybold called, "Why Google's WiFi ambitions will fail." The upshot is that Seybold says interferance will make MuniWiFi unusable. The techdirt guys agree but conclude:

"Where we disagree with the article, is in the fact that nothing stands still. Muni Wireless has many other wireless technologies from which to choose, some of which are better suited than WiFi. Also, future versions of WiFi will greatly improve the suitability of unlicensed spectrum for this task. We have doubts about Municipal 802.11b, but we don't see that as synonymous with Muni Wireless."
