  1. A good piece, but I’m not buying the closing line about advertising paying for the network, especially at the second and third tier airports.

    This might be true in the US, but unfortunately, it is still very much a case of pay, pay and pay again in countries like Australia. If you intend to come here for a holiday, and you want to use your laptop in cafes, hotels or airports, you’d better keep a wad of dollars in your back pocket! $25.00 a day isn’t unusual – and with the Aussie dollar almost at parity with the Greenback, that hurts!

    Yay for Google. Seriously. This is why they are the company to love.

    An aside: Phoenix was discussed alongside Sacramento in 2nd tier airports; it’s in the top 10 busiest airports in the U.S.
