Google One of Five Finalists for San Franscisco Citywide Wi-Fi Project

Om Malik posts over on Gigaom that Google has been shortlisted as one of the five finalists for the free San Fransciso Wi-Fi service that the sitting hopes to have up and running in 2006. I posted a few months ago that 17 companies submitted proposals, Om says it was 26. Whatever the may be, the list has been to five companies:

  • Earthlink
  • Google
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • MetroFi and
  • Skytel/MCI.

Our post from October 16th has links to where you'll find the full text or exec summaries of many of the proposals along with key passeges from the document.
