Philadelphia Hopes to Lead the Charge to Wireless Future<br><br><blockquote>City officials envision a seamless mesh of broadband signals that will enable the police to download mug shots as they race to crime scenes in their patrol cars, allow truck drivers to maintain Internet access to inventories as they roam the city, and perhaps most important, let students and low-income residents get on the net.</blockquote><br>Nice!<br><blockquote>Telecommunications and cable companies say that municipal Internet networks will not only inhibit private enterprise, but also result in poor service and wasted tax dollars. They have mounted major lobbying campaigns in several states to restrict or prohibit municipalities from establishing their own networks.</blockquote><br>You don't say!<br><br>

Nobody's ever done worse in a superbowl (turns head west towards Buffalo).<br>I got a bunch of friends who go to Temple. They'll be happy to hear about the internet access.<br><br>
