>> another major internet boom with the new users this would create sorry but I doubt that enough people aren't online because they don't have $20 or so a month. If they were that poor, even with free internet, they would still need a laptop or some sort of router. Plus, extremely poor people are not as desirable to marketers, since they are more likely to buy store brands as supposed to buying P & G products
I disagree with this. I think that it will be great for a number of reasons. One reason for instance is when people travel to the city (sorry I call it the city since its only 1.5 hours away from me) they will have access to the net.
I am just confused at how they will make money off of this. Or is it some more 'charity' from Google?
