San Francisco turns free Wi-Fi into long battle

July 18, 2007

In his October 2004 State of the City address, Mayor Gavin Newsom pledged to "not stop until every San Franciscan has access to free, wireless Internet service"...

But the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and other advocates raised concerns about EarthLink's privacy policy. They also complained that Google's ability to track the whereabouts of network users could prove irresistible to law enforcement (Google said people worried about such things could sign up using false names).
