Free WiFi in San Francisco through Meraki

Meraki hopes to cover San Francisco in a sea of Free Wifi.

If you take a look at their map, you can see that they’ve got a good bit of coverage in San Francisco.

Look for the “Free the Net” SSID to hook up.

I really like the fact that they are looking into solar for their routers.
