AndyAndyAndyAndy writes “NYC may finally have a viable plan for free, ad-supported public Wi-Fi service. A company named LimoRes Car & Limo plans to roll out 1,000 cars with transmitters by the fall, and 20,000 by 2011, providing in-car Wi-Fi and externally with a radius of 200 feet. Each car will be able to support up to 16 separate connections. It may be a long shot to say this will provide complete coverage in Manhattan, but if each cab company in New York got onboard… although the brief article notes that the tougher regulation environment for taxicabs means that Wi-Fi won’t be coming to Yellow Cabs any time soon.”
