Wifi Hotspots

The state of Maine might be looking at being the first to go state-wide with a wireless network. The governor is proposing a service be installed by the year 2010 to cover 90% of the communities there with more than five people per square mile. It's part of the Connect Maine initiative that also would provide statewide cellular phone coverage by 2008.

The city of Diamond Bar, California is the first to implement the NextZone Connectivity Solutions of NextPhase Wireless, which combines Wi-Fi with Broadband over Power (BPL) and structured cabling. The service is for city officials only right now as they attend meetings at city hall. says the city of Carlisle, Pennsylvania owes its limited downtown hotzone service in three restaurants to a proposal made by a 15-year-old high school student who wanted to surf the Web while downtown on North Hanover Street. The service was setup by PA.Net of Mechanicsburg.
