How common are citywide free wireless Internet access grids?

Free Citywide Wireless Internet Access

Free municipal wireless Internet access is currently extremely rare. There have been several cities and towns in the United States that have created such grids that blanket their entire surface, and it makes the Internet essentially free and fast for all their citizens (and visitors). The only thing that one needs to utilize such a community-wide wireless grid is a wireless card. Unfortunately, traditional ISPs and telephone companies don't like big free wireless grids. They see them as being competition, and they have been working hard to make them illegal. There are already several states in the U.S. that don't allow free municipal wireless Internet access.
