City CIO Mark Keil joins Gigabit Nation to discuss the success and future plans of Chattanooga WiFi, and how other communities can implement a similar network for the general public. Currently, City agencies run 55 applications on their wireless network, and more are in development.

Chattanooga's future plans include taking advantage of next generation wireless technology, such as LTE 700. Keil gives listeners a peek at some exciting new initiatives happening around the city. He also discusses the role of integrated fiber and wireless networks in communities' efforts to maximize broadband buildouts.
