Somerville’s Urban Hot Zone … Coming Soon?

Oooh! D. C. Denison reports in yesterday’s Boston Globe that the city of Somerville is considering setting up an urban hot zone in Davis Square to provide free wi-fi to customers of participating businesses and three parks. The cost to merchants is expected to be approximately $30 per month with no charge to the city for access in the parks.

This is a great idea conceived by Wi-Fi activist Michael Oh of Tech Superpowers (who first setup the hot zone prototype along Newbury Street) and Patrick J. McCormick, the chief information officer for the City of Somerville.
