RI plans statewide wireless broadband network

Rhode Island is aiming to build the first statewide wireless broadband network by 2007 using a combination of WiFi and WiMAX technologies. The Rhode Island Wireless Innovation Networks, part of a $20 million project, are expected to cover the entire 1,045-sq.-mi. state using hybrid WiFi/WiMAX technology. No word on who's providing the infrastructure.
