Downtown gets free 1GB Wi-Fi; ‘smart parking’ next

Montgomery has launched free 1-gigabyte Wi-Fi through the central part of downtown, and bigger changes are on the way. Plans include street cameras, a fiber network, 22,000 new LED lights and “smart parking” through an app, all part of a wider effort to create a “Smart City Living Lab” in the heart of the city.The free internet service quietly launched along Commerce Street and Dexter Avenue earlier this month, paid for by the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce.

This is pretty impressive. I would love to see further expansion of MGMIX to include surrounding neighborhoods with access to fiber.
