Madison WiFi RFP

The State of Wisconsin Department of Administration Friday issued this RFP:

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) For CITYWIDE WIFI ACCESS And DESIGN, INSTALL, OPERATE, MANAGE, MAINTAIN AND MARKET A COMMON WIRELESS ACCESS SYSTEM (CWAS) for DANE COUNTY REGIONAL AIRPORT [654K PDF]

I'll post some comments after I've had a chance to review the document. Let's hope this flies in a citizen friendly way (rather than the recent anti-citizen legislation that was passed in Pennsylvania).

It's due January 10th, 2005. I wonder what the odds are on a SBC win (SBC is the incumbent, all powerful local telco. Local player TDS perhaps has a shot, along with others).

Esme Vos has already posted comments on the RFP. Via Glenn Fleishman
