OK, not really, but LA’s red-headed stepchild, Cerritos, has got it going on! OK, not really, but sort of. This might be old news to anyone on the SoCalWUG list or unwired.cc since it was talked about there yesterday, and I was going to post it here then but felt like an asshat making three posts in a row so I decided.. nevermind. Basically, according to the second news item in this report Cerritos is going to be getting city-wide wireless internet access as early as next month. According to the report, the city is stepping up to the plate because Verizon has been unable to provide DSL to much of the city and people need to get their high speed download on… for um.. you know… stuff. So they teamed up with a company called Aiirnet Wireless to put about 60 access points around the city. This is a greatr idea and other parts of LA should jump on that one quick. I know a ton of people who live in Silverlake who time and time again get offers for DSL only to be told at the last second that it’s not yet available up in their hills. Wifi over silverlake would make a lot of people smile.
