MetroFi's head Chuck Haas predicts urban and suburban Wi-Fi coverage in most areas in five years: Om Malik reports on the statement Haas--a founder of Covad--made at The Kelsey Group's local search conference yesterday. An EarthLink Municipal Networks division exec agreed with the principle but not the timeframe. Some commenters have interpreted Haas's remarks as meaning in five years not within five years. In a year's time, at least 10 relatively large urban areas or cities will have service. There are dozens of small municipalities in the US that will have completed networks this year.
