I'm not sure how to take this news.

I'm thrilled that cities are beginning to see broadband internet access as a public resource and feel a responsibility to provide it to their citizens.

On the other hand I'm wondering if these cities are spending money on technology that will be superseded by WiMax in the not so distant future. It's possible that these cities will deploy 802.16 standard compatible equipment but I didn't see that mentioned.

Here's a link to another, similar article(I didn't register with the Post to read their story).

And a link to a pdf on WiMax.

What are the thoughts here regarding WiMax and its coming introduction.
