At the Lower Eastside Girls Club, we've had a plan in place for three years, to give away free wireless broadband to Avenue D once the new building is constructed. Andrew Rasiej is running for public advocate on a free WiFi platform. He told us that non-profits should stay out of it. Hmmm...last time I looked, NYC Wireless was a non-profit. They've unwired Bryant Park, the financial district, Union Square. And in Philly the non-profits have played a big role in providing access to their constituents. Maybe Andrew was having a bad night.
Still, we're on the same side in the battle against the telecom monopolies. Here's Andrew's new report on price gouging by broadband providers.Posted by Dave at August 18, 2005 10:11 AM
