Well, part of downtown Pittsburgh is going wireless: Telerama, an ISP, made a deal with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to cover 14 blocks downtown with Wi-Fi. Users will be able to access info about theaters and other cultural spaces in the area for free and full Internet access will cost $5 a day or $30 a month.
While clearly business people can use the network, Telerama specifically targets neighborhoods and campuses for the more "casual" user. It already offers service in coffee shops, bars, restaurants, theaters and health clubs in Pittsburgh. I think they'll really have to spell out why people other than business users will want to use the networks because I don't think Joe laptop user walking down the street will understand why he would want to get online in the health club.
Unlike some of the big hot spot operatorsm, Telerama actually pays hot spot locations to become hot spots. I wonder if that means Telerama has a different revenue sharing model than some of the other folks.
