Interesting sidenote to EarthLink getting a passing grade on its test network in Philadelphia: Drexel University has struck a deal announced today that will allow its tens of thousands of users access to EarthLink's network in Philadelphia and other EarthLink networks in the U.S. Terms weren't disclosed, if any. It's a one-year pilot project. Drexel has 28,000 registered network devices and nearly 20,000 students. Greater Philadelphia sports over 80 institutions of higher education that enroll 300,000 students each year. Drexel will continue to operate its own Dragonfly network on its campuses; this is an interesting extension, and a great way to win customers who pay as each class graduates.
