Mexico City goes for citywide wireless

We're all for unlimited free wireless coverage wherever we go, but we'd prefer access to water--if forced to make a choice. According to the AP , Mexico City is the latest to add its name to the growing list of urban areas looking to provide free high-speed wireless.
The city's mayor has made the project "the highest priority," having inked a deal with a Chinese corporation ZTE Corp. to provide wireless access to all 8.7 million residents. Yet, according to the AP, that could be overly ambitious, considering the fact that the city continues to have problems providing basics like water and electricity to all residents.
