As wireless mobile technologies become central to contemporary living in urban areas, private service providers are undertaking directives to expand their broadband designs. Using critical policy analysis, this research examines city planning documents in cities with wireless broadband technology initiatives. It finds a disconnection between urban planning efforts and wireless technology policy that must be remedied to ensure democratic communication technology policies for the future.
