Dynamically Priced Parking = Free WiFi?

A Strong Towns podcast this week features an interview with Donald Shoup in which he suggests his usual approach to selling neighborhoods and business districts on metered parking: share the revenue!

But he goes on to suggest another benefit. He describes one district in which dynamic pricing was communicated to meters via WiFi. Since the WiFi infrastructure was then in place, they provided free WiFi to the district!

[Sadly, I believe the paystations in Portland communicate via cellular modem.]
