Google to offer free wireless Internet service to San Francisco?

By Derek Sooman on October 2, 2005, 12:05 PM
Google is working on a plan to offer a free wireless Internet service to the city of San Francisco, in response to a program proposed by Mayor Gavin Newsom this year.

He has positioned the program as a way to offer universal and affordable broadband Internet access to the city's residents and businesses.
Google has said that the service would be "open", and has proposed wholesaling wireless bandwidth to third parties who the company thinks could have interest in selling premium services.
