CITY OF BROTHERLY WI-FI (opens in new window/tab)

  1. Don’t get your hopes up for government Wi-Fi. Government employees are not in the business of customer service and it shows.

    I live in Chaska, MN and never did get the router to work. I did some troubleshooting on my own (tech support was no help) and figured out the problem is poor reception. The RF box is about a block and half away.
    The fix is to put the router outside and it works fine.

    Good thing I never abandoned my trusty (if expensive) roadrunner modem. Results have been mixed with some in the area having success, and others unhappy for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the sucess level would have been improved if they had a concept of technical support and service. Additionally it seems that the most satisfied are those who currently have dial-up modems. Since those folks are used to slow speeds and relatively frequent drops, it msut seem like a huge improvement.

    I’m hopeful that a larger city like Philly can pull it off, because the concept is great. But don’t hold your breath.
