Silicon Valley WiFi project behind schedule

Not surprisingly, the massive WiFi network planned for California's Silicon Valley is behind schedule. The promised test networks and model agreement for local governments aren't finished. The initiative, backed by a group of cities and private companies called Wireless Silicon Valley Task Force, want to build a sprawling muni-WiFi network that would provide 2.4 million people in a 1,500-sq.-mi. with WiFi coverage. Backers, however, say the initiative is not dead. But in light of the negative publicity surrounding failed muni-WiFi initiatives, including San Francisco, the group faces a tough road in negotiations it still faces with some 40 municipalities.
