Establishing wireless networks in urban areas that can provide ubiquitous Internet access to end-users is a central part of the efforts towards defining the Internet of the future. In recent years, Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) backbone infrastructures are proposed as a cost effective technology to provide city-wide Internet access. Studies that evaluate the performance of city-wide mesh network deployments via experiments provide essential information on various challenges of building them. In this survey, we particularly focus on such studies and provide brief conclusions on the problems, benefits, and future research directions of city-wide WMNs.
