Wi-fi might fly

The city of Sacramento is trying to get its long-promised wi-fi network moving forward again. Before you call your service provider to cancel your high-speed connection, read the fine print. “Free” means free with banner ads. To get ad-free service you’d have to upgrade to pay about $20, which is a good deal if it all works out. Last time the city pulled out at the last minute after they realized other cities were getting a better deal. Most cafes in the area offer free wi-fi already, but I’m sure there will be even more locations where people will be happy to log on. Parks? Rooftops? Light rail?

    hell, if you live in most apartment complexes, you can probably jump on someone else’s unsecured connection.

    but you should find them and at least offer beer.
