Muni wi-fi marches on

Earthlink has won the contract to Wi-Fi Anaheim:

Once the contract between the City and EarthLink is approved, deployment of the 50-square-mile, citywide Wi-Fi mesh network will begin in a phased approach. In the first phase, EarthLink will construct a two-square-mile proof-of-concept area for testing and analysis. The remainder of the city’s network will be completed by the fourth quarter of 2006.
