Mexico City WiFi network

Mexico City may become one of the next major cities to have wireless on every street, according to the Associated Press. Despite having troubles simply supplying water and electricity, mayor Marcelo Ebrard claims he intends to provide WiFi coverage to all of Mexico City's 8.7 million (official) residents, and this in the near future. "The city government is giving this project the highest priority," Ebrard is quoted as saying. An agreement has already been signed with China's ZTE, which will scatter the WiFi hotspots through schools, government offices and surveillance cameras. The move is a part of Ebrard's campaign to gentrify Mexico City, bringing it into line with wealthier capitals in other countries.
