The Real Reason Your Town Needs Muni WiFi: Donuts

from the thank-you-drive-through dept

Police in a town in New Hampshire have to shut off their in-car computers’ wireless modems when they hit the local Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru because they interfere with the restaurant’s computers — giving them a reason, along with the current networks’ slow speed and spotty coverage to push the city there for an upgrade. Forget things like inadequate service from incumbent providers or helping attract business investment. The ability to get donuts easily and expeditiously is all you need.
