An expansion of the free civic WIFI at Pershing Square is only a couple months away according to the CRA's Curt Gibbs. Gibbs made a presentation yesterday to the Historic Downtown BID, and said that the money's approved, the hardware's already been bought and all that's left is to get the new radios up on the poles. There's a chance that could be done by the end of the year.

This expansion, proposed back in January would add 13 new radios to the two already in place at Pershing Square. Additional coverage would be added to parts of the Historic Core, Financial District and parts of Bunker Hill. Exactly where that means you'll be able to sit and do your roving reading of blogdowntown has yet to be determined.
