The wireless network which is up and running as of today is a whoppin' 46 mbps, the equivalent of about 30 T-1s. Thats 30x's the bandwidth of a typical public hotspot thus allowing for major video conferencing and public events. Some guys from Sony's LoactionFree TV were there and loving the fast TV over IP stream.
Brown is building a network of 18 Wi-Fi Hot Spots in 9 parks and 4 boroughs around New York City.
We also met and interviewed Andrew Rasiej a public advocate for New York City. I was extremely impressed and look forward to keeping up with and supporting his endeavors. I'll add an update when the interview is published.
