In this paper, we will explore the existing operational "business models" for municipal wireless networks in US and Sweden. Based on the current paradigms of the North-American public wireless networks, we will investigate an emerging wireless city concept in Sweden to analysis this new business concept in the existing field. We will look into the relationship of different actors in various business models of the wireless cities in our selected case studies. This paper will aim to demonstrate a number of key considerations when designing and managing the business model of Municipal wireless networks as business-driven and public utility-driven services.
