The city of magic, Anaheim, CA, which houses Disneyland, is soon to be turned into a completely wireless city. The CEO of Earthlink, Charles Betty, is the one responsible for installing little boxes to more than 1,500 traffic lights across the city, which emit a Wi-Fi connection throughout a large radius.

At the end of June, Betty will cut a ceremonial wire, which will activate all of the boxes throughout the city. Residents will then be able to pay $22 a month to tap in to the city-wide connection.Anaheim is not his only target. He also has already secured contracts with Philly and New Orleans for the same kind of infrastructure, and he is eyeing Honolulu, Minneapolis, Arlington, Va. and, with help from Google, San Francisco, as well. If the Anaheim project works out well, expect other cities to be getting in on the action too.
