MetroFi is a Mountain View, California based company that won the City of Portland Unwire Portland RFP. Their service in Portland has been criticized, and they have hit some road bumps with other cities where contracts fell through. They claim to serve a handful of cities, currently, with aggregate populations of over 1.1 million, half of which live in Portland.
Denise Graab is a (the?) MetroFi spokesperson. Some Personal Telco Members have taken issue with the tone and substance of Ms. Graab's communications.
Personal Telco Project is NOT Metrofi. Please email Metrofi at email@example.com for help using their network.
