    Municipal Wireless is meant to bring technology companies and users to the
    city by appearing tech-friendly as an early-adopter.

    You fi... I fi... we all fi, for Wi-Fi!

    Analysts now say the number of PC users is expected to hit 1 billion by
    2010. That's thanks, primarily, to developing nations such as China, Russia
    and India. Meanwhile in this country, new technologies like DSL and Wireless
    are snagging more and more people off of their dial-up connections. If you
    happen to be one of those people terrified by the idea of summer vacation
    without Internet access, you're not alone. Cities across the U.S. are
    working on making sure On-line addicts have access free of charge. There's
    even a campground in Burlington Vermont that's set up wireless net access,
    otherwise known as wi-fi. So you can still Instant message with your
    friends. And Vermont's not alone. Marketplace's Lisa Napoli reports from one
    city that helped launch the trend.
