Vendor offers free wireless broadband grant for one lucky small town

Sam Churchill writing in DailyWireless reports:
"Coastal Wireless provider Wheat Wireless has a great promotional idea with its new Wireless Community Initiative Grant. Through the grant, Wheat Wireless Services, Inc. is offering $100,000 in wireless networking hardware and network engineering services to one small town in the United States ... The town selected for this grant will have a resident population over 7,500 and fewer than 25,000. The target population must not currently have a commercial broadband solution such as DSL or cable Internet. The town's geography should be one advantageous to wireless line-of-site networking, such as a valley or flat community."

See Sam's article for the full story.
