Latest Article in the Economist: Reality Bites for Municipal Wi-Fi

I file occasional pieces for the Economist, somewhere between 2 and 4 a year, and my latest is online and soon in print.

The market has changed, and future Wi-Fi networks built for cities will be on a very different financial footing with different promises made.
