New York set for citywide wireless via BBC

New York City is on the verge of going fully wireless, according to a deal being finalised this month between authorities and a group of six technology companies.In exchange for being able to mount up to 18,000 new lamp post-based antennas, to strengthen coverage around the five boroughs, the companies will pay the city government around $25m each year. The antennas shall be aesthetically placed. Some criticism about using wireless technology so extensively are beginning to get heard - most of the criticism is centered on health grounds. One protester said,"Nobody runs a microwave 24 hours a day, seven days a week, outside their bedroom door when they are sleeping... That's why it's important we study this." With Big Apple, showing the way in embracing wireless extensively, other cities around the globe shall follow soon - clearly sign of things to come.
