Chicago has created a task force to study the feasibility of a city-wide Wi-Fi service, and the city drafted legislation to preserve the right to permit installation before the General Assembly can pass a bill that would preclude municipalities from doing so. Currently the biggest provider of Wi-Fi in our city is the public library system. Wi-Fi installation would place approximately 7,500 small antennas on street lights every few blocks, at an estimated cost of $18.5 million.
