EarthLink and municipal WiFi

As you know if you have read this blog before, Earthlink began reevaluating its commitment to municipal WiFi this summer. According to this and this, the results of this evaluation indicate that Earthlink will be exiting this business. you might enjoy this analysis as well.

Do you think this dooms the concept of municipal WiFi? Or, does this simply open the door for WiMAX based systems? What about the possibility that Earthlink was pursuing this as a strategy to exit the declining dialup business?
