It's not just Philly that's going wireless

MiWiFi Brings Wireless Internet to State Parks, Marinas, Rest Areas and Welcome Centers:

The State of Michigan and SBC Communications have announced that wireless Internet access, or WiFi, is now available at the Holland State Park and the Grand Haven State Park, the first two state parks in the nation to provide this service.

MiWiFi is powered by the SBC FreedomLink Wi-Fi service and will soon be available in many other state parks, welcome centers and rest areas across the state. The service will enable travelers to wirelessly connect to the Internet at speeds 50 to 100 times faster than dial-up. Customers can gain access to a FreedomLink hotspot when in an approximately 150-foot rage of its location.
