With Mayor Bloomberg having decided New York will not follow Philadelphia or San Francisco in providing publicly funded wireless Internet access, a nonprofit community development organization in the Bronx has entered a deal to offer its more than 5,700 residents the next best thing - cheap wireless access.

The Mount Hope Housing Company announced yesterday that 120 residential units in four of the buildings it manages now have access to wireless broadband service for $19.95 a month. The service will be available in all 1,250 residential units in its 31 buildings by February, the organization said.
