From the Kansas City Business Journal comes this exciting bit of news:
Google Inc. now is offering free Wi-Fi in Kansas City. And once again, the City of Fountains is the first to take one of Google's high-tech services on a test run.
After declining Friday to announce plans in Kansas City, Google has deployed a free, outdoor Wi-Fi network in the Crown Center area. The network, however, will be limited to the shopping area's outdoor amenities, Google said in a statement.
"As a part of our work to bring Google Fiber to Kansas City, we're testing an outdoor public Wi-Fi zone in the Crown Center area," Google spokeswoman Jenna Wandres wrote in an email. "In the future, we'd love to be able to launch more Wi-Fi zones throughout Kansas City. But for now, we're focused on this one test Wi-Fi zone in the Crown Center area."
