BellSouth Fights To Close New Orleans’ Free Wi-Fi

One of the more hopeful stories coming out of the Katrina disaster was that the city would open its wi-fi network to anyone wishing to use it for free. As a staunch libertarian, I generally disapprove of the government doing anything that puts it in competition with the private sector, but in this case I’m almost ready to support the government wi-fi program just to see the telecoms screwed. With stories coming out regularly on the email tax and other such shady business practices, I don’t think it’s any wonder that many people harbor ill will against the telecoms and ISPs.
