Free Citywide WiFi for San Francisco?
I read on Engadget earlier yesterday that Mayor Newsom apparently wants to make San Francisco the world’s biggest free hotspot. The Yahoo! article on the news mentioned the currently free WiFi spots at Union Square and at SBC Park, and how Newsom plans to have more free WiFi spots around other sections of the city like City Hall.
It’s certainly an ambitious proposition, and makes a nerd like me quite happy, but I’m wondering if there isn’t some ulterior motive to all this. Not to mention if we even have the money for this kind of thing. Interesting news, all the same.
