ATLANTA and ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Today, EarthLink (NASDAQ:ELNK), the nation's next generation Internet service provider (ISP), officially launched its first municipal Wi-Fi broadband network in the City of Anaheim. Curt Pringle, the Mayor of Anaheim, will officially 'unwire' the City at a wire cutting ceremony beginning at 11:00 a.m., PT this morning.

This portable, wireless service will provide inexpensive, high-speed Internet access for the City's residents, businesses, visitors and municipal employees.

"The days when Anaheim residents, workers and visitors are tied to a desk to access an affordable broadband network are coming to an end," said Garry Betty, president and chief executive officer of EarthLink. "The launch of this network enables people to make a choice about how, and from where, they want to access the Internet securely."

"EarthLink has always focused on providing the tools and services that allow our customers to personalize their Internet experiences. The launch of this municipal Wi-Fi network in Anaheim is the latest proof-point that we are delivering on that vision," Betty added.

"Anaheim has always been recognized as a leader throughout California and the nation. Today, with the launch of this network, Anaheim becomes the largest city in the United States to deploy such a technological advancement," Mayor Curt Pringle said. "Our partnership with EarthLink will benefit residents, businesses and visitors, allowing them to conduct business, answer emails, do school research or interact with our virtual City Hall anywhere and any time in Anaheim."
