Focuses on the interference issues faced by wireless fidelity projects in municipal areas in the U.S., which provide free high-speed wireless Internet for all homes, schools and virtually every place else in a city. Conflict between advocates of the project and wireless network operators; Manner in which the law on modern communications by Claude Shannon, an engineer and mathematician who died in 2001, was applied to the interference issue; Use of the wireless data mesh technology to address the problem on interference.
