Wi-Fi in Mountain View

What do u think would be the best community outreach program from any company ? Well Google is planning to provide free Wi Fi internet connection to an entire city of mountain view where google is headquartered. You can check there official report here. Impressive Isn't it. How I hope Google was head quartered here at bangalore and we would be enjoying free wireless internet connection in the city.

As a matter of fact it does'nt cost much for a big multinational company to provide Wi - Fi connection and is inexpensive as well. All it requires is a right attitude and of course some serious support from government. It'll be nice to call our city "Wi Fi Enabled".

Hmmmm, Well on second thougts lets assume that, some IT company is willing to make Bangalore a Wi Fi Hub, Does we really deserve it when there are many serious issues to be addressed such as basic infrastructural development. May be we could use the same money to have a stronger and better roads. And I strongly feel that the true importance and significance is lost when things are given free of cost. People start misusing the benifit. What do u say ???

Mysore already is Wi-Fi enabled!

Wow, that's cool. Is the connection free there.

But wi-fi in Mysore is just limited to a street, not the entire city.

Vishi said...

The last I heard, it covered atleast the city center and cost about 700 bucks a month.

Free Wi-Fi won't work. They need to go the route of Earthlink and MobilePro who are charging an end price. MobilePro is opening up their networks (they won Sacramento, CA, Tempe, AZ, Chandler, AZ and Farmers Branch, TX) to other service providers which means "competition" in the service department.

Rs 700/- per month is resonable if there are no limitation on down load. And Mr. Anonymous, solid feedback man.

Seems like a wonderful option to work upon.. but ofcourse as you have urself pointed out, the first priority is always to work out the basic infrastructure!

In the developed world, virtually every profession makes use of computers.
However, certain professional and academic disciplines have evolved that
specialize in techniques to construct, program, and use computers.
Terminology for different professional disciplines is still somewhat fluid and
new fields emerge from time to time
