- Wireless Washtenaw Waits, Ann Arbor News 25 July 2007. "No additional installations have been made while 20/20 Communications, the company working with the county, applies for a $14 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and tries to line up other funding."
- WWW: Waiting for Wireless Washtenaw, Arbor Update, July 2007. "So 20/20 Communications has its "pony keg" wireless antennas up around downtown Ann Arbor, Saline, and Manchester, but according to the Ann Arbor News , the rest of the program is on hold. It seems some of the funds they had hoped to get their hands on have dried up."
