FINALLY!!!!! LA is jumping into the future, which actually is right now, and getting citywide WIFI. You gotta hand it to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for backing the LA WIFI Initiative. It’s a wonderful thing to provide access to the internet to everybody and this will go a long way to do just that. As mentioned by lavoice, the LA Times and blogdowntown this initiative will provide wireless access to the city of Los Angeles by 2009 and be one of the largest urban wireless networks. It will cover about 498 square miles and the estimated final cost is around 62 million. Well worth it!
