A service that barely worked anyway appears to be out the door. Here is the email I just received from them:
Dear MetroFi User,
It is with regret that we notify you of our intentions to discontinue
offering the MetroFi FREE and MetroFi Premium services in Portland. We are
in the process of negotiating with a 3rd party network operator to keep the
network in place, and during this time your services will not be affected.
As soon as we know the outcome of these negotiations, we will provide you
with further information.
The MetroFi Team
Who might that 3rd party be you might ask…well, how about the city of Portland and more of our tax money? Because, that is what they are trying to do. For the most part, I am decently happy with Portland's city government. I don't expect much I guess except not screwing things up. Well, this was a huge screw-up! Can the city sue these people? Sam Adams, come on…do it.
What's even more upsetting is that it could have easily been avoided by having the city build, operate, and own the system. OR, how about those guys at Personal Telco who have been doing a great job for years and continue to do so?
Ridiculous…you can read some of my previous pieces on this garbage and see a couple lies MetroFi wrote back
