Harlingen moves forward on muni wireless

The City of Harlingen received a $500,000 TIF (Texas Infrastructure Fund) grant back in 2002 that was used to errect two sets of wireless broadcast towers. Now, the city is looking to move forward and expand their network coverage.

What we want to do is provide more towers to reach further into the community and outer communities and provide a local Internet provider though TSTC."
