A New York meeting providing information to companies interested in offering free Wi-Fi access counted Google among its attendees, according to a new Bloomberg report. Others at the event included IBM, Samsung and Cisco, but Google’s ambitions regarding blanketing the U.S. with free or affordable Internet connectivity could be a good reason so suspect it’ll submit a compelling proposal to the NY Department of IT today to be the one to gird New York in wireless connections.


Google has already offered up free Wi-Fi in and around its offices in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC, where it has its main east coast office, and it has a number of other initiatives in the works to provide people in the U.S. and beyond with cheaper, more abundant access to connectivity. The benefit for Google is clear – the Internet giant only has as many potential clients as there are connected consumers, after all.
