Google today got the nod to capture the most lucrative high tech advertising market in the world for their exclusive advertiser driven link farm. Mountain View, California the silicon valley, the epicenter of all that is cyber in this world. Almost every startup in the last 10 years starts and is there. It is the most condensed saturation of computer savvy and dependent technologists. The perfect market for WiFi. Almost 100 percent of the residents and business are high tech or related. What a perfect location for a WiFi monopoly.’, ‘From the news release Google has stated:
“Under terms of the pact, Mountain View potentially could receive an annual payment of some $12,600 for the placement of Google equipment on the light poles. All installation and maintenance costs will be paid for by Google, and utility expenses, estimated at $3,000 to $4,000 per year, will be paid by the city and reimbursed by Google.” News Factor
When a corporation can coup this kind of advertising potential for $12,000 a year they have some pretty powerful people behind them. $1000 dollars a month to advertise to the whole of the Mountain View? A no brainier I would say. And next is San Francisco.
