Community WiFi giving cable a run in some communities

A new multi-dwelling WiFi installation in Provo, Utah illustrates a new trend in which community WiFi applications are providing broadband Internet connections that are cheaper and easier to install than cable systems. More than 300 homes within the 320-acre Cambria Community can receive the 802.11n-based 3 to 5 Mbps service for about $21 a month--less than one half the price of most cable broadband offerings in the area.
