Delayed flights and hold-overs won’t tempt you with $10-a-day Wi-Fi this holiday season. That’s because Google has bought out web service at 47 airports through Jan. 15, 2010, and offers it free, assuming you don’t mind a little soft advertising.
As with Google’s free Wi-Fi offering on Virgin America flights, those who log in through Google’s Wi-Fi largess will likely get a few prompts to change their home page to Google or try out Google Chrome. There will also be chances to donate to Engineers Without Borders, the One Economy Corporation, or the Climate Savers Computing Initiative. Other than that, it’s free Wi-Fi for laptops and mobile devices, offered through providers like Boingo, Advanced Wireless, and the other usual suspects.
Hit the link to see if you’re city’s on the list. If it’s not, there’s a good chance your Wi-Fi could be picked up by Microsoft’s Bing search engine, which foots the bill if you perform one search on Bing.
