The Associated Press and IDG News Service report the Phila. city council unanimously approved the Wireless Philadelphia/EarthLink deal: Of course, there's still two more signatures to get. I'm not kidding. The City Solicitor and mayor must both sign the contracts, but there's no worry about that happening. EarthLink must now obtain permits, which should be expedited through these blanket contracts, and start building their 15-square-mile test network. They anticipate the full network being finished by third quarter of 2007.
