A better approach

Chaska, MN is a city offering wireless broadband Internet access to its residents. Unlike the proposed plan for Philly, in which the service would be free, charges for its service; $15.99/month for residential customer and $24.99/month for businesses. The city is using its access to things like utility polls and their water tower to reduce costs.

Should Philly go ahead with this free plan, it's going to come to be regarded as yet another "entitlement," which is the last thing this cash-strapped city needs.
