Google plans to offer Wi-Fi access equipment to businesses

Published: 23 May 2014 y., Friday

Google Inc plans to offer Wi-Fi network hardware and software at a discount to small and medium-sized businesses, tech blog The Information reported, citing a confidential document it accessed and a person who was briefed on the project.

Google would provide commercial-grade Wi-Fi access equipment at a steep discount and Web-based software for businesses to manage the Wi-Fi network from anywhere, the blog report said, but it did not provide specific pricing details.

Google may require Wi-Fi users to "sign in" to their Google account, allowing the company to gather more information about them and target advertising to them.

Google also plans to share some data with the business owners to help them learn about their customer habits, although it was not clear what the Internet giant might be willing to share, the blog said.
