I have been thinking about this for a while, yet I don't know how to get started. I really want to set up free wifi in the downtown area of where I live. It would pretty much just be a few square miles with no buildings taller than 2 stories. The reason for it is because the only area where there is free wifi is in a smoke shop, not the best place to browse the net. And all of the other areas are pay to use. Now my question is, what would I have to do to get the sponsorships and start up money to begin my project? Would I have to get a permit? It just really feel like paying back to my community. Suggestions?
