Why not offer the same tax break to all businesses in a certain area? Though I wonder, obviously you'd need to setup some sort of quality control system, to prevent someone from ordering the cheapest data package there is and claiming to offer free WiFi.


I like the tax credit idea. Far more efficient economically. But if you read the comments to my blog post, you and I are "communists". So funny.


This is what nonprofit groups like Personal Telco (www.personaltelco.net) have been trying to do for many years. I think Esme is right, but she is discounting all of the good work groups like this have already done.

Cities don't need to make businesses do this, they already want to. It also belies, as Esme is often wont to do, the availability and financial concerns of many businesses paying for backhaul bandwidth. This might be the biggest difficulty for growth for these types of networks.
