Google Wi-Fi could take heat off local govs.

If Google ends up successfully providing free Wi-Fi service

across the United States this could take some of the pressure off of

local governments who feel the need to provide connectivity to its

citizens.  Provided that this could actually come about and your

city or county had Google Wi-Fi coverage, this could help focus dollars

on providing government services via the Internet to a suddenly well

connected populace.  Of course this is all specualtion now and is

rife with controversy but should be interesting to watch if and when it

unfolds.
