Google Inks Wi-Fi Deal in Downtown Mountain View
Google Inc. said that it is ready to replace its Wi-Fi network in downtown Mountain View which will make the area a ‘free’ outdoor wireless hotspot.
On Tuesday night the Mountain View City Council voted to approve a new five-year contract with Google Inc. which will be in charge of the installation.
Google Inc. also gave a $500,000 grant to install and maintain networks at several city wide community facilities.
Mountain View’s eight-year old existing Wi-Fi network has had some problems with reliability and performance.
