Lots of wireless broadband news from Esme Vos'

Esme Vos does a great job of covering community wireless broadband projects around the world on her site. Just as valuable as Esme's passing along the news is her analysis of industry trends -- her site is a weekly must-read. I've been remiss in linking to her recent articles, so here's a look at just a few of the six weeks' articles of note:

"County-wide Wi-Fi in Georgia coming soon?" A profile of Houston County's network

"Cerritos, California gets city-wide wireless network"

"Wi-Fi hotzone in downtown Eindhoven [Holland]"

"Brussels to provide city-wide Wi-Fi access"

"Ten technologies to watch"
