Wireless broadband news

Recent news about wireless broadband:

Australia: "Adelaide first wireless city"
"The Australian city of Adelaide, in South Australia, has become the first city in the world with a complete citywide Wi-fi network ... The CitiLAN network has been set up by a consortium of public and private organisations in Adelaide, providing a comprehensive network of 40 access points in the CBD. The project is now being extended to cover the whole city, including residential areas."

"Broadband for export: U.S. lag opens niche for Canadian firm"
"Waverider targets dial-up doldrums"

Canadian wireless broadband vendor Waverider has built its' success on supplying wireless broadband to the many rural U.S. communities that U.S. Bells are refusing to serve with broadband. The article goes on to point out that Waverider's success has been limited in Canada since the telcos there have been so much more aggressive in rolling out broadband across the country (and at much lower prices).
