Why Municipal Wi-Fi Networks have Been Such a Flop 236

Jake Melville from Slate shot us a link to one of their stories that outlines why municipal wi-fi failed but also tells of the too-rare success stories. While cities that left their wi-fi in the hands of the private sector fell prey to the "last-mile" problem, grassroots efforts such as that in St. Cloud, FL, have blossomed.

    How fucking dare anyone out there make fun of Municipal Wi-Fi Networks after all they have been through?

    All you people care about is GRASS ROOTS! GRASS ROOTS! GRASS ROOTS!

    LEAVE IT ALONE! You are lucky even to have Wi-Fi you bastards! LEAVE MUNICIPAL WI-FI ALONE!

    Please!

    Speaking of professionalism, when is it professional to publicly bash a networking infrastructure who is going through a hard time?

    Leave Municipal Wi-Fi alone, please.

    LEAVE MUNICIPAL WI-FI ALONE RIGHT NOW. I MEAN IT.

    Anyone that has a problem with them, you deal with me, because it is not well right now.

    LEAVE IT ALONE!
