Google is here to bring you FREE Wi-Fi. Staring NOW!
How many times have you found yourself in a situation when you needed an emergency Wi-Fi hotspot for your computer and your phone and even the best café in the area offered obscenely slow connection? Probably too many times. Well, you won’t have to worry about things like this in the near future, because Google is bringing you Wi-Fi connection and it’s completely free of charge!
According to official reports, the tech giant has launched a new campaign with great goals – to broadcast free Wi-Fi signal globally. Google’s brand new company, Sidewalk Labs, is on top of the project. They are currently transforming 10,000 unusable phone booths all across New York into futuristic Wi-Fi “pylons”. These new pylons will offer Wi-Fi signal, stationary phone calls and cell phone charging, which will be free of charge for NYC residents. Apart from that, they will also provide another super cool feature – vast information about the city’s layout plans, communities and transportation. Oh, and it will be touch-screen operated, of course. This project is currently in its early stages and the Wi-Fi pylons will be installed all across NYC in autumn 2015. Of course, you probably shouldn’t get overexcited just yet, since there will be lots and lots of testing to come. However, the folks at Google standing behind this project, are so optimistic about it, that they are sure they will spread the Wi-Fi pylons not only across NYC, but also across the whole world!
Or in other words, they are working on distributing Wi-Fi completely free of charge to all of you. Okay, forget what we said earlier – you should go ahead and get really overexcited about this. After all, it’s Google and free Wi-Fi we’re talking about!
