Aiming To Be America's Premier Wireless City: The Philadelphia Story

Wednesday, April 26 | 8:00AM–8:00AM
Session Type: Resources
Philadelphia seeks to spur economic development and transform its neighborhoods by blanketing the city with affordable wireless Internet access. The Wireless Philadelphia initiative has sparked a nationwide trend where local governments are recognizing the value of public Internet access to citizens, business, and education, while enabling government offices to provide access to public services in a more efficient manner. This session will discuss the impetus for the project, its progress to date, and the need for public-private collaboration.
