LA's latest hotspot

no, its not owned by Ashton Kutcher or anyone else from That 70s Show. the city released today the a report on municipal wireless broadband entitled "Fast and Easy: the future of Wi-Fi and beyond in the city of Los Angeles."

in a nutshell, the report recommends a 5 year wifi rollout, funded by a "public/private partnership business model" using securitized bonds, apparently in an attempt to avoid using tax money. hidden in the appendix is a summary of wifi in other cities (including cerritos, long beach and hermosa) and how they're financed.

download the whole report here.
