The article presents information on accessibility of wireless system in Sarasota. The county owns considerable bandwidth stretching from Ringling to Osprey and plans to allow free access to Its Internet. Sarasota News and Books patrons sometimes enjoy wireless access, but courtesy of a neighboring business with service. Those concerns combined with access to unauthorized sites delayed the opening of Selby Library to wireless access this summer, but service is finally slated to start this month. One day, wireless Internet access will be as common as cell phone service, but not until the economics are worked out.
