Personally, I'd love to see Wifi routers installed at the top of light poles and along highways, with maybe some insurance offered by the Federal Government so investment losses aren't huge. Although that type of thing might already exist, I'm no expert on investment losses as they relate to American taxation.

I know a big problem with my idea is crime, so I'm thinking cheap cameras on or near the poles would be a good idea as well. Any motion not on the road itself would trigger taking a picture and then sending it back to the main server, and there'd be no requirement to view any pictures unless there was peculiar internet behavior at that point.
That approach might work better in a society where people aren't likely to take potshots at street fittings.
