Google has confirmed its plans to start offering free wireless Internet in Mountain View, it's home city. If the local government accepts the deal Mountain View will be turned into a Wi-Fi hotspot by June 2006.
"Providing free Wi-Fi access in Mountain View is one way Google can support the citizens and businesses in the community where we are headquartered," said Chris Sacca of Google's new business development unit.

"This proposal is in the spirit of making the world's information easily and quickly accessible."

The offer to Mountain View follows one Google made two months ago to provide free wireless service to the entire city of San Francisco, just to the north. San Francisco is considering the bid, according to Sacca.
