I Love Mountain View

ILoveMV.org is the official Visitors Center for the city of Mountain View. It highlights all kinds of fabulous things-to-do in our community and shines a spot light on interesting people, new start-ups, and other important things like… where to get the best slice of pizza or martini, how to hire a day-worker for the afternoon, and how to be a community volunteer.

Free WiFi

No-cost wireless Internet (WiFi) services are now available in most areas of the City as a benefit of a five-year agreement the City has entered into with Google, Inc., the Internet search engine company headquartered in Mountain View.

The City authorized Google to place wireless transmitters on City owned-streetlight poles through the City to create one of the first city-wide-no-cost WiFi networks in the country.

Google completed installation of the transmitters for the network and in August, the network was launched. More than 500 people attended the two community training sessions conducted by Google at their Mountain View headquarters to acquaint people with the new network.

In order for WiFi users to get a stronger signal inside their homes or offices, they will need to purchase consumer premise equipment (CPE) that is available from local retailers or on the Internet for $50-$100.

In addition to providing no-cost WiFi service in the City, the agreement with Google calls for Google to pay the City an annual fee for use of the City’s streetlight poles and equip the city’s new mobile library services vehicle with mobile wireless equipment.

For more information about the Google WiFi network, visit the Google Help Center website.
