Thanks to Google's help, Goose Creek makeover gets free Wi-Fi boost

Remember how Goose Creek was planning to up its "downtown" vibe? Remember how the town was also nearby the home of a new Google data center?

Well, those two things have gelled nicely in the form of Google sponsoring a freely available Wi-Fi internet cloud for much of the town — and that cloud is now online.

The Post and Courier has a nice concise report (read that here) along with a map of where the network is available (see that here).

Google's ponying up for the first three years of service but beyond that timeline and the network's current geographic coverage, the Town of Goose Creek will need to step up.
