Default Vermont wireless service

A friend just mentioned The Great Auk Wireless network. It is just getting started, and I gather there are some glitches, but it does seem to bring wireless web access to under-served parts of the state.

Not sure of its extent at this point, but they have a cute mascot and lots of information on the web site.

The community of Chaska, south of here, implemented community wireless last year. I understand from an associate that it works pretty well.

Although most local residents have cable/DSL access, our own community is considering doing something similar. (Note: I am not now, nor have I ever been, involved in the community web site)

I can understand why you might want to say that! <g>

BTW: the URL requires www. (or at least by adding that I was able to get past the 404).
