Free wireless Internet access is available indoors and outdoors in San Francisco's Marina district across Union and Chestnut Streets

AnchorFree Wireless has announced the launch of a second free wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) hotzone in the heart of San Francisco’s Marina district. Consumers can access the Internet wirelessly at no cost indoors and outdoors along Union Street.

A twin Wi-Fi hotzone is located along Chestnut Street, within walking distance of the Union hotzone. Together the two Wi-Fi hotzones give consumers access to free wireless Internet in 120 locations including cafes, shops and restaurants. Consumers can access the free service using wireless enabled laptops and PDAs.

"We are pleased to support the efforts of AnchorFree to bring all citizens access to free wireless broadband services," said Mayor Gavin Newsom. "This new service will certainly benefit citizens, visitors and businesses on Chestnut and Union Streets and further encourage technology innovation in San Francisco."

“Once again AnchorFree is pioneering Mayor Newsom’s vision of free wireless Internet service for every San Franciscan”, said David Gorodyansky, President of AnchorFree Wireless. “Today San Franciscans have the freedom to use our free wireless Internet service in over 120 locations in the Marina District.”

AnchorFree has completed Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology compatibility testing through the Intel® Wireless Verification Program (WVP), helping to ensure consumers can enjoy the productivity and lifestyle advantages of Wi-Fi technology within AnchorFree’s Wi-Fi hotzones.

“As a participant in Intel’s wireless verification program, AnchorFree has tested its Wi-Fi service for compatibility with common configurations of notebook PCs based on Intel Centrino mobile technology, Intel’s premier technology for wireless mobile computing,” said Karen Regis, director of marketing programs for Intel’s Mobile Platforms Group. "By providing consumers with free wireless Internet connectivity at 120 new locations in San Francisco’s Marina District, AnchorFree helps enhance the 'unwired' experience for Intel Centrino mobile technology users, connecting them back to their work place as well as their family and friends.”

In May of 2004, AnchorFree launched a Wi-Fi hotzone in downtown Palo Alto, California. The Marina districts Wi-Fi hotzones are located approximately 30 miles from the downtown Palo Alto hotzone.
