Default Google is giving a small town in Oregon $100,000 for free WiFi

Google is giving a small town in Oregon $100,000 for free WiFi. It's a town called The Dalles - a community with interesting significance for Google.

The Dalles is a city of 12,000 people along the Columbia River, about 80 miles east of Portland. Google owns a massive data center in The Dalles. It's a key Google operation. It's powered by the cheap hydroelectricity that comes from the Columbia. Twin cooling towers stand four-stories high, keeping the servers from overheating as they continually crunch data and serve it back to millions of people online
