Palo Alto, San Carlos closer to MuniFi

Palo Alto Daily News reports that the two Bay Area cities are close to signing off on trial zones for their MuniFi efforts. Brian Moura, assistant city manager of San Carlos told the newspaper that two “one-square-mile testing spots in Palo Alto and San Carlos may be ready as soon as late February.” Each square mile would have between 35-to-40 access points that would be installed on street poles for four month trial period. This trial is part of the big Wireless Silicon Valley initiative.
