Free High-speed Sewer-net

It appears that previous rumors of Google deploying free WiFi were a bit premature. Rather than using the airwaves as their vehicle for free high-speed Internet for all, the search behemoth is heading to the sewers. They introduced in a press release today a new high-speed internet technology named  Google TiSP (BETA).

The Toilet Internet Service Provider (TiSP) project is a self-installed, ad-supported online service that will be offered entirely free to any consumer with a WiFi-capable PC and a toilet connected to a local municipal sewage system.

The site also sports a helpful (and informative) page that documents how to get started with Google TiSP.

Happy April 1st.
