[FoRK] The State of Muni Wifi in PDX

Tom Higgins <tomhiggins at gmail.com> on Wed May 23 08:06:00 PDT 2007

When the city of Portland decided on Metrofi as its wifi contractor of
choice there was skepticism as to whether they could meet the
requirements of the project. Two of the Person Telco Projects members
took it on themselves to do an independent test to find out if MetroFi
met those legal requirements.

The final paper on the findings cn be found here

The short answer is all about suckage, failure to meet the
requirements and changing the terms for the official city audit.

The paper presented by the two independents is thorough and a great
read on how to do testing if your muni ever decides to do up such a
network.
