I remember the fire and hellstorm (aka rash of social media postings and local news stories) when Pacific Gas and Electric debuted smart meters in California. As smart cities evolve, I wonder if there will be the same sort of outcry.
Every city has different needs and areas of improvement. For example, some cities might have traffic congestion problem, others might have law and enforcement problem while other might have basic necessacity and pollution problem etc. Identification of the biggest problem of the city should be the first step before thinking about the proposals.
well, it is time, since now we are third world country, if you look and compary with the rest of the world, just the prices are high not the provided service e.g. you pay $60 for a 1.5/ 0.350Mb/s internet service in the "Silicon Valley"
