EarthLink relaunches the Texas city's network: Corpus Christi originally built out its municipal network for meter reading and such. They decided to hand the network over to EarthLink for operations and to extend it for public access. EarthLink says three-quarters of the 55 sq mi network are up and running now. Rates are $20 per month with the first six months at $7. A one-year commitment garners a free wireless bridge.
Interestingly, based on the current schedule, Corpus Christi could be EarthLink's first completed city and is probably already the largest contiguous area they operate. On the flip side, they inherited some of the infrastructure, and it might not be fair to judge their national performance on this network's ability.
MuniWireless reports that EarthLink added "up to 30" nodes per square mile; I wonder if they added nodes to reach a total of 30? EarthLink typically talks about using 35 nodes per square mile on average.
