BellSouth vs NOLA

Daily Wirelss has a post up about the continuing struggle between BellSouth and New Orleans over the city’s WiFi plans.

From the post:

New Orleans decided last fall to convert its Tropos-based WiFi public service network, used for emergency personnel, into a free Wi-Fi service. But, as USA Today recounts this week, it has ruffled the feathers of BellSouth which says the city’s network is illegal.

The city got around the state-wide ban on municipal wireless because the governor declared a state of emergency after Hurricane Katrina. But the state of emergency is expected to be lifted this year.”
