SPOTLIGHT: Google rebuffs RFP for bigger Silicon Valley WiFi network

What are Google's long-term plans for muni-WiFi? The company has rebuffed an RFP from Wireless Silicon Valley Task Force, a group of cities and private companies that are looking to build a sprawling muni-WiFi network across Silicon Valley. Since Google has already built a WiFi network in Mountain View, CA, with plans to build one in San Francisco with EarthLink, it seems like the task force's networks, which would provide 2.4 million people in a 1,500-sq.-mi. area, would be a good fit. Does that mean Google only has short-term plans for muni-WiFi? Are we reading too much into this? Google says it's simply too busy building and maintaining its two networks. Article
