Outdoor WiFi in Wilmington, NC

Back in June, I was in the RTP area for work and took the opportunity to do some site seeing over the weekend. It’s funny, I’ve become totally spoiled at home with the ubiquity of service provider Wi-Fi that when I travel in the US, I’m usually reminded that this type of access is not as ubiquitous everywhere. In the regular places I visit in San Jose, CA and in RTP, I’ve yet to see the physical signs of SP Wi-Fi. So it’s funny to me that the first place I do see the signs is in this tiny little down on the coast of North Carolina called Wilmington.

This AP appears to be from Ruckus’ ZoneFlex Outdoor series of APs and judging from info on the Ruckus website, is likely backhauled via cable modem.
