Sacramento Signs Pact for Muni Wi-Fi
The City Council in the California state capital of Sacramento approved a free, ad-supported WiFi service that will reach some 95 percent of the outdoor areas of the city.
The ad-supported, free service will have speeds of up to 1 megabit per second. A similar-speed but slightly higher grade service with no ads will be $15 a month, and a three megabit service along with a free Internet phone will be charged $50 a month.
Sacramento Metro Connect LLC will build the citywide network, in exchange for a promise from the City of Sacramento to purchase its own Internet service from Sacramento Metro Connect and for the City to permit WiFi-facilitating gear on municipally owned light poles.
The service is expected to be built out by October, 2009.
