Muni WiFi ban to be heard on Wednesday

When last we checked in, the ban on free municipal wireless networking had been dropped from HB789, but as the bill was still in committee and as the ban is favored by Regulated Industries Committee Chair Phil King, it ain't over by a long shot. According to Inside the Texas Capitol, the bill has been put on the calendar for Wednesday, so as before, now is an excellent time to contact your rep and tell him to keep that provision out.

As always, Save Muni Wireless has more, such as the success story of Taylor, Texas. Check it out.

I haven't seen the language, but I think it says that hot spots are okay but wireless clouds are not. Which is a bummer. We'll never end up being Philadelphia....
