Additional proof that Google plans to cloak the United States with no-charge Wi-Fi has been brought to light, Business 2.0 reports via CNNMoney.com.
The rumor was first reported last year by Business 2.0, according to the article.
The search giant has developed and patented three technologies for providing free Wi-Fi and advertising, according to Business 2.0. Search Engine Roundtable, a search industry forum, says the patents all pertain to providing free advertising via a wireless Internet connection that’s managed by a third party, which would most likely have its brand touted within those ads, Business 2.0 reports.
