World’s Largest Hot Spot

If the Philadelphia city has its way, sometime in the next couple of months, I could be living in the world’s largest hot spot.

According to recent news updates, Philadelphia is planning to return to the frontier of technological innovation through various initiatives. For example, did you know that the Univac (regarded as the first computer in the world) was actually made in Philadelphia?

The venture to provide free wireless access to all residents within 134 square miles of the city are also part of the promotion to attract, educate and retain students in the city through the Stay, Invent PA marketing campaign.

So, when are you planning your next Philadelphia investment?
