More Than Wires
Driving around my undisclosed location I noticed some funny looking antennas hanging off of the utility poles every few hundred feet. After asking around, it turns out that this large city is installing muni-wireless internet for all of the residents. It seems that the commercially available options have been gouging consumers and the city has determined that they can do it better and cheaper.
(The photo to the left is a random image from the web that looks similar to what is being installed. It was too dark to take my own picture.)
