Wi-Fi Antenna MIA

Please note the picture at the top of the page which is a Belair Wi-Fi antenna outside my window, part of the Minneapolis muni wireless. Those of you who follow the blog know that I once linked to the Internet via that antenna during the pilot project.

Well the antenna has disappeared. So has the one on the corner. My block is without antenna.

What happened?

  1. There are upgrades going on so maybe they are coming back with a new and better antenna.
  2. No one on my block is subscribing so they moved the antennas to a block with subscribers.
  3. St. Paul (our twin city) is stealing the antennas to start their own municipal Wi-Fi deployment.

I think I’m at a meeting with one of the principals of US Wireless. I will let him know about the missing antenna and maybe he will have some answers.

Stay tuned.
