Google has no plan to profit from the the free Wi-Fi service that it is providing to Mountain View, California, the city where it is based. “The reason it is free is because…we want to get a lot of people on it,” Google’s Larry Alder said at the Supernova 2006 conference in San Francisco. Though fully deployed, the service is not yet accessible to all residents in the area. Google dismissed fears of privacy infringement, insisting that it will only require users to have a Google account and will not demand for their names or addresses. The account, according to the company, is needed for problem-monitoring purposes.
