Minneapolis deploys WiFi with eye on WiMax

BelAir Networks and US Internet will supply the equipment for the network, which will cover a 54-square mile sector of the city. The WiMax idea is interesting since Minneapolis would need to obtain some licensed spectrum to operate such a network. Where is it going to get the spectrum?
