Free citywide WiFi in Mountain View, Silicon Valley

Google launched a WiFi network in their hometown of Mountain View. Radios hanging on lampposts throughout the city are now broadcasting a "GoogleWiFi" wireless (802.11b/g) signal that brings wireless Internet access to the city's residents, businesses, and visitors. All anyone needs is a laptop or other wireless-enabled device and a web browser to get online. Then Mountain View users can select the "GoogleWiFi" signal, open their web browser and sign in with a free Google Account.

Paris - France is on the point to get its own Wifi network in the 2d district (arrondissement) of Paris. This project ready to launch in September/October is called Quartier Numerique. It means numeric district and is a will to put Paris on a top level wifi's city in the world. It will be a super high flow network provided by optic fiber that will allow residents and companies to connect at 100 Mbits/s. More info soon on the subject.

Wifi Story in Paris

The internet connection i have at home is now broken for a couple of days, which unfortunately obliged me to go outside, not for shopping either running or just bohème at a parisian coffee. Imagine that I had to go out to in order to find a wifi cofee to be able to post this. Not so easy in Paris specially in August to find a free wifi connection. So Thanks to Starbuck's which provides wifi connection to its customers. Good coffee smell, no tabacco, you just have to spend money on a lacte combo powder whatever coffee and be able to listen shalow elevator music (no comment on that)

It reminds me that without the web, we are so far away from emails, networking, informations and posting possibility. It reminds me that the project of QUARTIER NUMERIQUE IN PARIS, is a première in Paris and that it will allow people to have free access to the internet in the whole 2eme arrondissement de Paris. This project, ready to launch in October is supported by Erenis, Fon and the Silicon Sentier. It's a great initiative and I hope people will realize how important the web is and that without it, the numeric gasp is violent (specially when you are used to use the web) I think that we all are looking forward to have this free innovation access to high techno in Paris.

Silicon Sentier + FON + Erenis = ................?

= QUARTIER NUMERIQUE! Et c'est dans le 2eme arrondissement de Paris. Paris qui réitère sa volonté de devenir un modèle à la française de diffusion d'accès à l'internet très haut débit: sans pub, dans les lieux publics et ceux de la municipalité. Se connecter à Internet au Jardin du Luxembourg, bientôt possible!

Le Centre Pompidou propose du WIFI gratuit

Désormais, tous les visiteurs du Centre Pompidou pourront à partir de jeudi se connecter gratuitement à internet en wifi grâce à un partenariat avec la société française Ozone qui poursuit ainsi l'extension de son réseau sans fil sur la capitale. Cet accès sera disponible dans tous les espaces du Centre et notamment à la Bibliothèque publique d'information où les étudiants, par exemple, pourront venir avec leur propre ordinateur. La connexion gratuite sera limitée à 1h30 par jour. Ozone couvre aujourd'hui 45% de la capitale française et compte en couvrir 80% d'ici la fin de l'année.

Ozone, c'est bien! :)
