Free Wi-Fi For Residents in Portland, Oregon

Portland is the latest city that wants free Wi-Fi access for residents

More and more US cities are now thinking about implementing some sort of free or cost effective Wi-Fi service for residents. San Francisco, Philadelphia and Grand Rapids are several examples of cities that have already started the process of offering a Wi-Fi service within city boundaries. MetroFI has won a contract to build the municiple Wi-Fi network for Portland, the city recently announced. According to MetroFi, the financial costs will lie solely with the company, while the city will not have to pay anything. Local and national advertisers will support the free Internet service, with ad-free Internet available for $20 per month. A PR Newswire press release states:

"We are proud to partner with MetroFi in this effort to blanket the city of Portland with wireless Internet access," said Portland's mayor, Tom Potter. "MetroFi has demonstrated its commitment to bridging the digital divide by offering both free and low-cost alternatives for broadband access on an open provider network."

The company beat out two rival companies, including EarthLink -- although since EarthLink has won contracts in Philadelphia, Milpitas, San Francisco and Anaheim, the loss isn't a major blow to the company. Along with Portland, MetroFI will also build a Wi-Fi network in Aurora, Illinois.
