Fremont, Calif., may have Wi-Fi metro-scale provider within two months: I'll take a stab and say (without any inside knowledge) that MetroFi is the undisclosed company that wants to install service at no cost to the city. MetroFi covers Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Santa Clara in the southwest bay. Fremont is pure east bay (and my former home as a youth), and would be a good high-tech area to add. Fremont is treading carefully: the local utility threatened to sue them when Metricom went under and left their radios on poles! I never heard about that threat. Fremont went out and removed the radios, worthless once unmounted.
