Meraki Frees the Net in San Francisco

Meraki Frees the ‘Net in San Francisco: "January 4, 2008

Meraki announced today that it will provide free, broadband wireless access to the entire city of San Francisco. If all goes as planned, by the time the cold, summer fogs roll in, nearly all of the three-quarters of a million San Franciscans (and the hundreds of thousands who visit the City by the Bay each year) will be able to use their Wi-Fi-enabled devices to get free, high-speed Internet access anywhere within the seven-square miles of the city’s limits.

Helge: Wi-Fi is playing a bigger role in US...

Meraki is a Mountain View, California-based startup that began as an experiment at MIT, incorporated in April 2006 and, shortly thereafter, moved its operations from Massachusetts to California. The company takes its name from a Greek word that means “doing something with creativity, love, or soul,” and has made a commitment to “to bring affordable Internet access to the next billion people.”
