Rumor Mill: Google's free NYC WiFi hotspot

According to rumors circulating the Internet, Google has at least one free WiFi hotspot in New York City. The reports claim that Google sponsors a WiFi hotspot in Bryant Park. Google recently announced it is testing free WiFi hotspots in limited San Francisco locations and near its corporate headquarters in Mountain View, California. The New York hotspot would be its first away from home. The company's long reported purchases of massive amounts of dark fiber, cryptic WiFi service application descriptions on its Web site, and announcements of free WiFi testing in the Bay Area have led many to believe the company is looking to build free WiFi hotspots nationwide.
