They got it wrong on the designation -- but called to say a fix was in (really)

PITTSBURGH -- Getting on the web in downtown Pittsburgh could get a little easier.

The Pittsburgh City Council is considering a plan to create a citywide Wi-Fi network.

It would allow wireless Internet equipment to be placed on city owned utility poles downtown.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bob O'Connor hopes to have the system in place in time for July’s baseball All-Star game.

The system is expected to cost more than $500,000."
