Google Offers Free Wi-Fi in 47 US Airports For the Holiday Season Free Wi-Fi Access Till 15 January Confirmed

Google, the giant company that is slowly eating its way through the
Internet is ready to impress us with another initiative. Google is going
to offer free Wi-Fi connectivity to quite a few airports in the USA over
the holidays.
We all know how important travel becomes at this time of year and we
definitely appreciate such endeavors. Staying connected with the loved
ones during the holidays is very important as we tend to make and
receive more calls as well as send and receive more messages and emails.
And those inevitable flight delays ensure that we have plenty of time
for some Internet browsing. That s why Google is currently working with
various airports across and Internet services providers across the
country in order to provide free Wi-Fi connectivity in airports from now
until January 15, 2010.
47 airports are currently included in the offer and these include: Las
Vegas, San Jose, Boston, Baltimore, Burbank, Houston, Indianapolis,
Seattle, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, St. Louis and Charlotte. Other
participating airports like Burbank and Seattle have decided to make
airport-wide free Wi-Fi a regular perk offered to their customers and
they won t stop the service after January 15.
Partners of Google in this project are Boingo Wireless, Advanced
Wireless Group, Airport Marketing Income and others so we assume that
these free Wi-Fi hotspots will offer you exactly the dependable
communication solution you were looking for. Here s what Marissa Mayer,
Vice President of Search Products and User Experience at Google had to
say about the free Wi-Fi offer:
We're very happy to extend our Holiday Wi-Fi gift to the millions of
people who will spend time in airports over the next few months. We know
that this is a very hectic travel season for people, and we hope that
free Wi-Fi will make both traveling and connecting with friends and
family a little bit easier.
What she doesn t say is that Google will also cash in on all the
searches those people in airports are going to make. And with 100
million people travelling all over the U.S. from now until January 15,
the travelers are also going to make an important gift to Google: lots
of cash from Google search and related products.
In case you re going to travel with Virgin America then the free Wi-Fi
offer from Google extends to flights too. That s right, you ll be able
to check your email and send virtual greetings on board of Virgin
America planes so while you re heading to your favorite destination make
sure you also read your favorite tech blog, TFTS of course!
