Pittsfield Goes Wireless
By MEG HECKMAN
It's official. Downtown Pittsfield is wireless.
After months of work, the town has launched a WiFi bubble around its downtown businesses. Laptop users can log on to send e-mail, check the weather or do any other online chores.
Town leaders used a $4,500 federal grant to install the system in hopes of boosting traffic and business in Pittsfield. A "wire- cutting" ceremony will be held this morning.
