600 square feet? WOW.. Houston has a huge setup there!
Its not a bug.. Its a "feature"
Re: 600 square feet? Beat me to it!
$40 000 000 ??????????????????????? Shiiiiiiiiii Thats way way excessive.
Muniwireless was suppose to bring costs down because it doesn't use fiber. At those distances wouldn't a total wireless system like wimax make more sense ?
I sense somebody is price inflating.

Re: $40 000 000 ??????????????????????? Shiiiiiiiiii Everything in Los Angeles is overpriced...
First you have to have the $$$ lawyers
Then you have your 'preferred' contractor which charges 5x more than it should be.
Los Angeles is a VERY spread out city Before people start quoting $40M as overpriced, you should realize that Los Angeles terrain is not flat. LA has mountains (3000-5000 ft) and valleys (i.e. San Fernando Valley) all withing its space. It was a challenge to get cell coverage going and there are still spots where it is tough and/or unavailable.
IMHO they are going to need a lot of towers; whether $40M is the right number or not remains to be seen.

Re: Los Angeles is a VERY spread out city As a Los Angelino, I must give an empathetic "Woo Woo!!"
And then I let the fact that we're talking about something that.... 10-1 will not happen for many years to come. So many in fact, that I believe EVDO and the like will have all but eliminated the necessity/convenience of city wide Wifi. Now indeed, it would certainly be a leap in the right direction in eliminating what remains of the digital divide but with low-end DSL being offered @ 14.95 as it stands now, I can only assume that we'll see it go down further by the time this would ever have a chance to go live.
With all that said though, I'd love to have a decent speed alternative wireless internet solution in the city. You can never have too much internets surrounding you. Just imagine an entire city understanding the "O RLY" owl :P

LA Citywide WIFI. That's almost as big a joke as the LA City Council, not to mention Mayor Antonia VivaLaRaza.

What about the children How nice of the city government to facilitate childrens' access to pr0n & warez.
