Skift Take

Free Wi-Fi in the city's downtown areas will be popular and provide a boost to mobile devices and the Google brand.

The name Google (NYSE: GOOG) will be seen throughout Douglasville, George, due to the city’s agreement to accept the tech giant’s offer of free Wi-Fi in exchange for name placement in areas where the service is provided, reports the Marietta Daily Journal.

The Douglasville City Council voted unanimously to authorize Douglasville’s mayor to enter into contracts with Google for installation and operation of an outdoor wireless Internet network to cover downtown areas, Jessie Davis Park and Hunter Park, the newspaper reports.
