Bringing Free Wi-Fi

A recent post entitled “Wi-fi should be free” proported that wireless internet access should be free and apparently Google has read my post. (Hey, it could happen)

According to a CNN article and a Business 2.0 piece Google may have plans to create a nation-wide free wireless internet access “grid”. Through buying “dark fiber” and acquring ISP’s, while partnering with companies like Feeva (which offers free Wi-fi equipment to qualfied applicants) Google may have the resources and vision in order to provide hundreds of wireless hotspots across the country.

Let’s hope so.
