Bologna gets free citywide Wi-Fi

The city of Bologna announces free high-speed Wi-Fi across the city.

The City of Bologna has announced on its Web site that it will offer free high-speed Wi-Fi beginning June 12. The Iperbole Wireless Project is the first to offer coverage within a historic center in a major Italian city, according to a statement released by the city's deputy mayor. The network was deployed by Hi-Tel (a RoamAD partner), and Acantho, a local ISP. The University of Bologna was a financial supporter of the project, as well as the the City of Bologna and Laboratori G. Marconi, according to a statement from RoamAD.

Citywide Wi-Fi networks are on the rise as some officials begin to view Internet access as a utility. In the U.S., metro wireless networks are in the works in Chicago, Philadelphia and New Orleans, as well as in some smaller communities. EarthLink and Google are also trying to build a free Wi-Fi network for hilly San Francisco.
