and this is just the beginning...


Google said Tuesday it is teaming up with a New York City neighborhood business group to provide the company's first urban Wi-Fi network.

The network will be available free to about a 10-block area surrounding Google's offices in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, where Google has more than 3,000 employees. The area also is home to other tech companies, as well as high-end hotels and nightclubs and a housing project with more than 2,000 tenants.

"Google is proud to provide free Wi-Fi in the neighborhood we have called home for over six years," said Ben Fried, Google's chief information officer, who joined New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer for the announcement at an outdoor courtyard across the street from the company offices.

Google has free Wi-Fi in Mountain View, Calif., where it is based, and in a handful of cities where it has data centers such as Council Bluffs, Iowa, and The Dalles, Ore.

In New York, Google and the Chelsea Improvement Company are paying for the network, which cost $115,000 to set up and will cost $45,000 a year to operate. Wi-Fi, which allows for a connection to the Internet without the use of cellular service, would be free outdoors and in some indoor spaces such as a senior center.

Schumer demonstrated Tuesday that he was using the network to read his talking points on a tablet.

"This is a great, great thing for New York," the New York Democrat said.

Schumer said it would make sense to wire the entire city, and Bloomberg said Schumer should secure the federal funds to do it. The mayor, the billionaire founder of Bloomberg LLC, has tried to position New York as a high-tech center to rival Silicon Valley.

Fried noted that New York is Google's second-largest office in the world.

"Second is not a word we like," Bloomberg said. "You could make it your biggest office and we would be thrilled."

With your ignorant a.ss logic, why would broke places need wifi they can't afford? You can afford a computer but no internet for $10-$15 a month?

I doubt this Google wifi project is gonna be too successful at first -- you're gonna have hundreds of thousands of people using it simultaneously on a regular basis, I doubt it's gonna be as good as most office's wifi.

exactly
then that's when it will matter.
I believe it is a beautiful thing but I agree with you 98%. 2 % off for "except for the super rich jews/gays"

It's like giving food to someone whose fridge is full while neglecting the one who doesnt even have a fridge.

It probably will be slow and if not this definatley poses a security threat to all those people information
Remember if it is not your wifi connection, if it is open or public your information can be stolen

everyone owns atleast some sort of device that connects to the internet

but if its even an extra 10-15 dollars a month poor families can save, how is that ignorant a.ss logic?

and legit the only people who live in chelsea are rich gays and jews
10- 15 dollars is a bottle of water for them

He is full of shiit. Here in NYC dsl is the cheapest, and its like 15 a month. But the speeds are far worse than tethering.

Bottom line is Brownsville, coney island, and other areas with mad housing projects could have did good wit this. Families could drop cablevision which is 40 a month.
For a family just browsing google could have really helped them out. Most families in those areas live on less than 300 a month.

It's not like they can't do regardless. If the government wants to look over your shoulder they will. fu*k this free wifi bullsh*t. It's gonna be funny when people see a small increase in rent.

i think they will be able to accommodate most people though. i think that they are doing this more for the ability to see people's info and traffic.

they could however this makes it much easier................google can afford to do this cuz that place, whr the google office is, in ny is huge so it's all good. just don't trust that they are going to keep data private......
