Google Secure Access

Google have begin rolling out their much rumored wi-fi service, the main page at wifi.google.com seems to be up and down at the moment but the FAQs page seems to be staying up. As expected there has been much hype on the web but the FAQ suggests this is not at all a big mainstream product, and defiantly not a free wi-fi connection. Rather this is a way to secure your existing connection, using Googles own secure VPN. That said the potential to expand this service is very obvious and they do even make mention of Google WiFi, making it sound like some wi-fi service will be available at some point.

Not surprisingly GSA is currently in beta and “only available at certain locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.” No mentions yet on when we can expect a full rollout what areas will eventually be covered.
