Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2005
AnchorFree Wireless has announced the launch of a second free wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) hotzone in the heart of San FranciscoÂs 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."
ÂOnce again AnchorFree is pioneering Mayor NewsomÂs vision of free wireless Internet service for every San FranciscanÂ, said David Gorodyansky, President of AnchorFree Wireless. ÂToday San Franciscans have the freedom to use our free wireless Internet service in over 120 locations in the Marina District.Â
AnchorFree has completed IntelÂ® CentrinoÂ mobile technology compatibility testing through the IntelÂ® Wireless Verification Program (WVP), helping to ensure consumers can enjoy the productivity and lifestyle advantages of Wi-Fi technology within AnchorFreeÂs Wi-Fi hotzones.
ÂAs a participant in IntelÂs wireless verification program, AnchorFree has tested its Wi-Fi service for compatibility with common configurations of notebook PCs based on Intel Centrino mobile technology, IntelÂs premier technology for wireless mobile computing,Â said Karen Regis, director of marketing programs for IntelÂs Mobile Platforms Group. "By providing consumers with free wireless Internet connectivity at 120 new locations in San FranciscoÂs 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.Â
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.
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Co-Founders David Gorodyanksy and Eugene Malobrodsky had a clear vision in 2003: to give consumers an affordable and widespread way to access the Internet outside of their homes and offices. Company President David Gorodyanksy and AnchorFree Wireless have been featured in over 15 media publications. For further information, please visit http://www.anchorfree.com
