Submission + - Pittsburgh launches free downtown Wi-Fi

bp+m_i_k_e writes: The City of Pittsburgh recently launched Downtown Wi-Fi, offering two free hours of access daily. (Story: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06257/721696-53.stm )

From the story: The city's new Wi-Fi network is unique in the nation in that it covers a large, 90-block area, provides two hours of free access daily and allows users to surf at speeds comparable to a DSL modem. For more time, higher speeds and better security, subscribers can pay $7.99 a day, $14.99 a month or $119.99 a year. The operator, US Wireless, makes money on subscriptions and ads.

The US Wireless site has a coverage map. (http://www.uswo.net/wifi.htm)

Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
