The Opelika-Auburn News justcalling for “public” WiFi for not only the city’s residents, but for other municipalities, as well.
City water. City garbage pickup. City police and fire protection. City wireless broadband high-speed Internet?
That’s right. The Net. A city service. In your home. Sounds far-fetched? It isn’t.
City of Auburn officials are studying wireless Internet city services used in St. Cloud, Fla., and are considering such in town. We encourage not just Auburn, but all communities to consider such a service. The Internet is such a valuable tool for anyone to have – and to have it wireless without the monthly $20-$50 charges that normally accrue, are a bonus.
