BTS Partners will present a study conducted to determine existing wireless technology in the city of Boston and potential models to increase Wi-Fi capability in the future. The event is the outgrowth of an order filed in August 2004 by City Councillor Tobin, who represents West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain. Councillor Tobinâ€™s order called for hearings to discuss how the City of Boston could use wireless technology to bridge the â€œdigital divideâ€ and provide the infrastructure to support residentsâ€™ growing need for access to new technology.
