DAYTON, OH – City officials may create a free, public wireless Internet network throughout the city that would make Dayton a national leader in wireless Web services, reported the Dayton Business Journal. The network would allow people with wireless laptops, cell phones, and other portable Web-enabled devices to access the Web in public areas. The city would also be able to provide wireless meter readers, make digital pictures available to police officers in the field, and track the city´s vehicle fleets. William Hill, director of the city´s information and technology services, said the city is trying to establish a private/public partnership to fund the system. He told the Dayton Business Journal that he doesn´t anticipate any additional costs for taxpayers.
