"The DMV-ization of Broadband"

Writing in TechNewsWorld, Sonia Arrison poses a cogent question about San Francisco's municipal WiFi ambitions:

If City Hall can barely afford to provide residents the critical services that matter most, such as police, fire protection, and public transportation, why would anyone think it will be able to maintain a high-quality, cutting-edge broadband network?
Anyone who has ever undergone the two-hour wait at the D.C. DMV will agree with her.
