Australia: City of Adelaide to offer wireless broadband downtown

The Sydney Morning Herald reports:
"citilan, a wireless network that provides internet access throughout the Adelaide central business district and North Adelaide, has been launched by the mayor of the city, Michael Harbison. A media release said the area had over 40 wireless network access points, each with a range of about 200 metres 'line of sight', with more to come as demand grows."

"Many of these hotspots use city infrastructure such as traffic lights and lamp posts, identifiable by the citilan decal. Anyone using a laptop or personal digital assistant enabled with a wireless card within range of these emblems will be able to access citilan and roam across the city while still connected."

DailyWireless also has information on the network, along with some links.
