Mich. city wireless network delayed


Local broadband service expected to be in place next year

Grand Rapid Press (Michigan) 
 
GRAND RAPIDS — The dream of a citywide broadband wireless network is not dead, it's just behind schedule, a city official said Monday.

In December, Clearwire Corp. said it hoped to have a local network up and running in 2007. City officials now say they expect Clearwire to begin offering service sometime in the first half of 2008.

Clearwire, the Kirkland, Wash.-based company that signed a contract to blanket the city with a high-speed wireless network, is making progress, said Sally Wesorick, wireless project manager for the city.
