Campaign: Public-Private Partnerships

Highway Wifi

The idea is simple, Use our existing highway infrastructure to create a network of seamless wifi hotspots. The Wifi routers and extenders could be easily mounted to existing overpass & highway signs. Allowing anyone on the highway or within a mile's range to be able to access highspeed wifi internet. I don't think it should be free. But access should be reasonably priced. Maybe $10/month. It could be a government initiative which could help bring in money, thereby reducing taxpayer dollars. Or private entities could "rent" the highway space from state governments, then they receive incomes from users.
