EarthLink Selected to Build out Pasadena Network

The City of Pasadena, California selected EarthLink to build, own and operate a 23 square mile citywide municipal wireless network.

EarthLink will offer a symmetrical, 1 Mbps solution for customers and will work with the City to develop a digital inclusion program to offer certain qualifying residents discounted Internet access.

The City of Pasadena will be an anchor tenant on the network.

As part of its commitment to open access, EarthLink will enable multiple, competing providers to offer their services to consumers and businesses over its network.

EarthLink will deploy Tropos Networks' MetroMesh Wi-Fi routers on light poles. In addition, EarthLink will deploy Motorola's MOTOwi4 portfolio of products, including its Canopy high-speed backhaul and Wi-Fi mesh network equipment.
