Internet service provider EarthLink will be providing citywide Wi-Fi access in its hometown of Atlanta.

EarthLink announced Thursday that it's negotiating a contract with the city of Atlanta to build, own and operate a municipal Wi-Fi network throughout the city.

* What I find most amusing about this is Atlanta must still be on tin cans and strings...
Atlanta is the big bottleneck in the hops from the east coast down to Dallas where many online gaming servers are hosted. It has been a perpetual problem for over two years with the servers and lines owned by Earthlink.
Trying to play an online game that has to hop through Atlanta is most frustrating as the Ping Plot goes into a major stall there.
