Free Internet?

You're going to have to move to San Fransisco, California. San Fran is apparently behind Philidelphia but the concept is still revolutionary. The Mayor of SF has been behind launching a project to supply the entirety of the city with free wireless internet, wi-fi.

The image behind this is the importance of the internet in job progression, information and knowledge. They see it "spurring economic growth" and help low income citizens use the internet.

This ideal was wonderfully appalling to me. If the internet is free, the possibilities and potential of its use world wide increases ten fold. Right now Google is one of the leading bidders. Google would not be losing money as much as picking up a lot of profit on localized advertising.
