With an emphasis on creating ubiquitous Internet access to bridge the digital gap between location and access speed, the refinement of wireless technologies has it so that cities can reap the socio-economic benefits of the Internet. The 3r generation (3G) and wireless fidelity (WiFi) are the two main wireless technologies which access Internet using wireless devices. Some major cities in the U.S. have either deployed or have future plans to roll-out city-wide broadband wireless network using…

Low-cost sustainable wireless Internet service for rural areas
TLDR
This paper presents a study to realize a low-cost sustainable Wireless Internet Service Provider built for rural areas of developing countries with technical contributions in the form of throughput and latency analysis of IEEE 802.11n with the proprietary TDMA MAC protocol called airMAX over long-distance point-to-point links.
Modeling the relationship between network operators and venue owners in public Wi-Fi deployment using non-cooperative game theory
TLDR
This publication looks into the roll-out of public Wi-Fi networks, public meaning in a public or semi-public place (pubs, restaurants, sport stadiums, etc.), and the collaboration between two parties, a technical party and a venue owner, for the rolling out of a newWi-Fi network.
