No muni Wi-Fi in Houston

Dwight reports that Houston has shelved for now a plan to install a bunch of Wi-Fi hotspots around town. No details as yet, so I can't say why, but it is a shame. Hopefully this will get revived soon. I'll post an update when there's a story to link to.

The communications industry which has a lot of money to throw at campaigns hates public WIFI.

The GOP in Texas is opposing public WIFI as governments and non-profits competing with private enterprise.
