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.
- There are upgrades going on so maybe they are coming back with a new and better antenna.
- No one on my block is subscribing so they moved the antennas to a block with subscribers.
- 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.
