[Update Link: Glenn Fleishman, Wi-Fi Networking News, on the Minneapolis Wi-Fi choice.]
The wait is over and Minneapolis announced Monday that US Internet will be THE vendor and prohttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifvide Wi-Fi service to Minneapolis.
Here are the gory details from the Ways & Means agenda -- check Item 29.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune provides a few details here although it's shockingly incomplete.
MuniWireless has more details than the Star Trib plus comments from Becca Vargo Daggett who's a Wi-Fi watchdog.
There are still a lot of questions about service (like what's the upgrade path) that I hope will be answered soon.
