SAN FRANCISCO -- Late yesterday the San Francisco TechConnect Committee selected the joint EarthLink & Google proposal to build the municipal wireless network for the City of San Francisco.

The following statement is attributed to Donald Berryman, executive vice president of EarthLink and president of municipal networks, regarding the announcement:

"We are thrilled that the San Francisco TechConnect Committee has selected the EarthLink proposal, and we look forward to taking the next step to negotiate a contract to build a municipal wireless broadband network. San Francisco is one of the most progressive cities in the world and our combined offerings with Google, Motorola and Tropos Networks will stretch the possibilities of what a mobile network can do for residents, businesses, municipal government and visitors. We look forward to getting started in building a solution that will bring the incredible possibilities to reality.”

Since submitting an RFP to San Francisco in February, EarthLink was also selected to build a Wi-Fi network in Milpitas, CA, in addition to responding to New Orleans' call to help them keep their city Wi-Fi enabled.
