[PLUG] Public Service Announcement (Really)

I think this is relavent to those who live in Philly.

The Philadelphia Public Wifi network (no longer associated with Earthlink) 
is being worked on with regards to better performance. 

The first of many towers has been modified for better routing and internet 
responsiveness. I cant disclose the location of the tower, but I can 
indicate the neighborhoods that it serves: 

This is approximate:

Lombard St SOUTH to Oregon Ave
19th St EAST to the Delaware River

Depending on proximity to the nearest node, you could see up to 4Mbps. 
Anyone who lives in those areas, I would encourage you to check it out. 
The changes will be made to all towers in Philly in the coming weeks. 

Feel free to post feedback back to me OFF-LIST.
