FrenchSilk writes to mention that the San Francisco Chronicle has more details on the previously discussed Earthlink/Google municipal wifi project. The paper confirms that free access will be free to everyone, with higher bandwidth and more reliable tiers also available. The article touches on a number of related subjects, such as security, reliability, and privacy. From the article: "Recognizing the concerns expressed by electronic privacy advocates and community members, the City has negotiated an Agreement that addresses the privacy needs of our residents, negotiating terms stronger than any other City and incorporating protections that go far beyond what federal, state or local law requires. EarthLink and the provider of the free service will be required to fully disclose their privacy policy. This ensures that all users are aware of the privacy policies."

    Earthlink guarantees your privacy by tossing 95% of your emails. Nobody will be able to reconstruct your conversations.

    And your security is insured by having 30% of your packets dropped. This has been scientifically proven to reduce probing attacks by 30%.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
