Well, this should give a slight kick in the head to BPL:

Google offers S.F. Wi-Fi -- for free:

Upsdie: "Google Inc. has offered to blanket San Francisco with free wireless Internet access at no cost to the city, placing a marquee name behind Mayor Gavin Newsom's effort to get all residents online whether they are at home, in a park or in a cafe."

Downside:  "The speed of basic service would be 300 kilobits per second, which is much faster than dial-up Internet service but slower than some broadband."
