Why SBC wants free muni WiFi banned

If you ever wondered why SBC lobbied so hard for the anti-municipal networking provision in the telecom bills from the regular session, Dwight has the answer for you: SBC is rolling out its own WiFi network in a big way. The service is pretty cheap, too, if you're already an SBC DSL subscriber. (Which I might be today if they'd been willing to sell me the damn service back in 2002 when we moved into the new house. Apparently, even though I live within walking distance of downtown, the infrastructure wasn't in place to wire up my house at that time. So AOLTimeWarner of Borg got my business instead.) Anyway, expect a big ad blitz soon.
