Should WiFi Be Public Infrastructure? (continued)

Google’s plan to wifi San Franscisco is a great move.

I want free wifi the same way I want free content.

I’ve been blogging about this for well over a year.

Free and easy wifi makes my online life seamless.

And it allows all sorts of easy applications to be built.

Google is doing a very smart thing.

But they are just doing it in SF to start.

This ought to be a wakeup call to Verizon, SBC, Cingular, T-Mobile and the rest of the carriers.

They’d better do this too.

Or let Google own the ultimate last mile connection in the always on connected world we are quickly getting to.
