Google Unwires a City

The experiment continues... 

Just as AOL is getting out of the ISP business to focus on advertising, Google today turned on free Internet access for all of Mountain View, Calif.

Google will move its Wi-Fi experiment out of its "trusted-tester" beta phase where its been since June and open the citywide secure wireless connection to anyone with a standard 802.11B or G card.

Later in the article:

So now, stroll down the quiet and sunny streets of Mountain View and you'll find Wi-Fi access points hanging from 385 street lamps across the city, relaying the free wireless signal.
