The city of Colorado Springs says at least three companies have indicated an interest in building a city-wide wireless system.
Meanwhile, a pilot project that offered wireless service for a year-and-a-half in downtown Colorado Springs and the Chapel Hills area has shut-down because of a lack of business.
The city has asked the three companies interested in city-wide service to provide details.
The companies are Boulder-based Affinity Telecom, Chicago-based Federal Signal Corporation and Fort Collins-based Front Range Internet Incorporated.
Information technology office manager Andre Sodbinow says companies may want a commitment from the city before proceeding, and he's not sure that time has come yet.
He says a decision will be made by next month.
