Google Offers Free Wi-Fi To Mountain View, CA

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:01 pm

Search engine giant Google Inc. on Thursday sent a letter to the mayor of its home city of Mountain View, Calif., proposing to bring free Wi-Fi service to the city.

“Google is in a unique position to offer free access to the Internet, since we have the ability to subsidize and earn revenue indirectly when these Wi-Fi users get on the Internet and access our and our partner sites,” Minnie Ingersoll, a product manager at Google, said in the letter.

“We would like to work with a city that is close to our headquarters and supportive of this intent.”
