EarthLink grabs another Muni Wi-Fi deal; this one in Arlington County, Va.
The Wi-Fi mesh network will provide the approximately 26 square-mile Arlington County a broadband alternative for residents and visitors to the County. It will also enable County employees to work in the field without having to return to an office and a traditional landline to complete their tasks. EarthLink will also enable Internet access for to-be-determined nonprofit partners of Arlington County, as well as create wireless hotspots at a number of Arlington parks, community centers and libraries.

UPDATE: Houston may pay $500k per year for 5 years ($2.5M) for city worker usage.
