First Bryant Park, now San Francisco

Sittin' on the Docking Station of the Bay

If the cost of this project, for a city as complicated to blanket as San Francisco, is even three times this, it's a bargain.
[San Francisco will] begin negotiations with Google and EarthLink, which decided to team together earlier this year (in a bid to "bid to blanket San Francisco with a free wireless Internet") after initially bidding against each other. The companies will pay to build the entire network, which is expected to cost at least $15 million.

More and more, I'm coming to believe that we will eventually treat bandwidth as a Giffen Good.
