Google’s Holiday Gift: Free Wi-Fi For Travelers

If you’re one of the millions of travelers grumbling about paying for wi-fi these days, you’ll be happy to hear this. Google is offering free holiday Internet access at 47 U.S. airports and on every Virgin America flight. Just bring a WiFi-enabled laptop or mobile device and stay connected to family and friends for free while you travel now through January 15, 2010. It’s interesting to note that the airport list includes Las Vegas, San Jose, Boston, Baltimore, Burbank, Houston, Indianapolis, Seattle, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, St. Louis, and Charlotte. Additionally, as a result of the project, Burbank and Seattle airports will begin offering airport-wide free Wi-Fi indefinitely. Not included, however, are some major airports, including all three that serve New York City, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Chicago O’Hare, LAX, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. What’s the catch? As part of the promotion, Google is asking travelers to support three charities that you’ve probably have never heard of: Climate Savers Computing, One Economy Corporation and Engineers Without Borders USA. What’s cool about that, though, is that at the end of the program, Google will match donations made via the WiFi network, up to a maximum of $250,000 across the three non-profits. Not a bad deal. Thanks, Google! Can’t wait to test this baby out. Sources: Google and PC World
