This paper describes progress in Finland to deliver cheap broadband access to residents of apartment buildings: Housing cooperatives did a remarkable job working together to bring high-speed access to residents. The next step is to add Wi-Fi. The plan is for apartment buildings to place antennas on their roofs to offer coverage for the building next door. In this application Wi-Fi isn’t meant to be used as a primary form of access, but the author of this report describes it as the “icing on the cake.” Presumably it would allow people to use the Wi-Fi network as they move around the neighborhood.
