Thanks to those who took the time to fill out the poll; I'm still reading results: If you haven't answered my poll about how you like this site and what I should cover, follow that link. I received responses from probably fewer than 1 percent of regular readers, but they were pretty enlightening. Those who chose to respond rarely pay anything or much for Wi-Fi when they're out and about, and nearly universally would like me to cover muni Wi-Fi with less attention.
You'll get your wish on both counts! Yesterday's Starbucks/AT&T deal means there's more Wi-Fi (starting in second quarter) than ever before in the U.S., at least, that's going to be free or cheap; and the implosion of the municipal Wi-Fi market means it's no longer superheated (or supercollapsed), and I'll be writing less about every city and project, and more about what works and where.
