Google Launches Free WiFi in Mountain View

For all homeowners and renters in Mountain View comes good news from uncle Google. To offset the high cost of living, the company is donating free WiFi access to the entire city!

Radios hanging on lampposts throughout the city are now broadcasting a “GoogleWiFi” wireless (802.11b/g) signal that brings wireless Internet access to the city’s residents, businesses, and visitors. All anyone needs is a laptop or other wireless-enabled device and a web browser to get online. Then Mountain View users can select the “GoogleWiFi” signal, open their web browser and sign in with a free Google Account.
