Seattle most 'unwired' city in the U.S.


Blame it on the rain.

Intel's third annual survey of the most wirelessly interconnected cities in the country shows Seattle has surpassed San Francisco to become king of the [physically] unconnected.

The study showed that Seattle had more places for its residents to connect to the Internet via wireless, or Wi-Fi, hot spots than any other U.S. city.

The survey for 2005's "Most Unwired Cities" was based on the number of access points at commercial, public, airport, and other locations among the top 100 metropolitan areas in the United States.

The top 10:

1. Seattle

2. San Francisco-San Jose-Oakland, Calif.

3. Austin, Texas

4. Portland, Ore.-Vancouver, Wash.

5. Toledo, Ohio

6. Atlanta

7. Denver

8. Raleigh-Durham, N.C.

9. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.

10. Orange County, Calif.

My question is what's up with Toledo, Ohio?

What's it doing in the number five position?
