ELN in Philly

Broadband Properties magazine writes about ELN in Philly: "Back in the US, though, Earthlink is mired in technical problems in Philadelphia, where it committed to cover 135 square miles with WiFi. Philly was supposed to be the poster child for American WiFi. First service, in a small area of the city, is not expected now until September. The problem in Philly and elsewhere is that the WiFi 802.11b/g/n standard band, 2.4 GHz, is at least partially blocked by most construction materials. As a result, Earthlink and other system builders have had to add more access points than originally expected, and (as Earthlink has done free, in Anaheim) supply extra in-home "booster" devices."
