WiFi Roundtable

Great to see so all the people who attended the roundtable at American Intercontinental University on Thursday. Some really good questions were pointed towards the panelists:
  • Don Berryman - President, Earthlink Municipal Networks
  • Janis Jefferson - Deputy Director, City of Houston IT Dept.
  • Manuel Rodriguez - President, HISD Board of Directors

A few good answers came out of it, too.

  • The build-out will begin around July 1. Only hurdle left is for Earthlink to sign agreement with Centerpoint for the usage rights to their light poles.
  • Earthlink must complete 1/2 the network build-out within 1 year of that start date. A steep $$$ penalty woulld levied if they don't hit that mark.
  • The entire project must be done within 2 years from the start date.
  • Zones will be built and "lit up" after the City deems them ready and working. The first zone most likely will be in and around downtown Houston.



  • A few months back I heard about a store in the Tomball area that sold wireless internet cameras. Any help on name or an address. Thanks in advance
