WiFi Rail gets a nod from the Bay Area Rapid Transportation (BART) authority’s board: The board of the giant SF bay people mover has given a kind of tacit go-ahead for negotiations with WiFi Rail, a company that has been testing a unique form of delivering Wi-Fi using coaxial cable as antenna extensions. Cooper Lee, founder and CEO, told me that the approval lets them focus on nailing down a contract with the authority, which he believes should take just a couple of weeks, as WiFi Rail is eating the costs of the project.
Works for me. As for those who don’t want to be available and online all the time, do what my wife does, turn the device off. As for me, the more wifi, the better!
