Each federal agency spends a high-level of funding resources on IT infrastructure, data warehousing, servers, networking capabilities, and IT security. Costs for IT infrastructure could be significantly reduced if there was a unique, secure, D.C. region-wide, wireless internet hot-spot accessible only by U.S. Government computers. If all U.S. government employee's were "enabled" to access the "hotspot" from any location in the D.C. metro area, it would save costs for office space, networking, servers, and provide higher level security then conventional networks. Plus, it would enable people to meet and work at any location in the D.C. metro-area, reducing transportation costs.
