Anyone ever wonder what happened to Philly wifi?

Is it in place already? Everywhere? Supposedly it’s up in most areas already.
I didn’t get word of this until I saw an article in the student newspaper at Drexel- saying that for one year, every Drexel student will be given free access to the Earthlink wireless network set up in every neighborhood in Philadelphia. The catch is that you can use it free for 5 hours each month, giving you the option to purchase additional hours from Earthlink themselves.
Has anyone utilized this system yet? How did it work out for y’all?

    I have heard that the network is relatively “out dated” compared to what is available now. However, I am constantly moving throughout the city and it may be worth it to try.

    Drexel has once again taken steps to maintain its reputation of being technologically advanced. They were the first one to have a wireless campus — in the 2000/2001 school year. Considering a number of their students live throughout the city, this is a great opportunity for them to test the new network.
