Madison WiFi - SkyCable TV/AOL

Andrew Wallmeyer and Dinesh Ramde report that the City has begun negotiating with SkyCable TV of Madison for local WiFi coverage. I've emailed Mayor Dave and County Exec Kathleen Falk urging them to make sure that the connectivity is fully asymmetrical (full speed, BOTH directions). This is essential for knowledge workers (video conferencing, vpn, telnet, ftp and multimedia). I hope they don't blow it and view internet access like TV, as SBC is doing (spending big bucks from their installed base trying to shove video down everyone's throats).
