Covering Taipei

Taipei is planning on building the world’s largest Wi-Fi grid, according to Reuters. Taiwan’s Q-Ware is deploying "at least 20,000 access points throughout Taipei at a cost of US$70 million." Access points will be attached to street and traffic lights, and planners seek to have 90 percent of the city covered by 2005. "As far as we know, this is the only city that has tried to have a city-wide coverage of wireless service," says Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou. Hewlett-Packard is a consultant to the Taipei city government and is working with Intel, Microsoft and Cisco, reports CIO Today.
