Free Google Wifi @ Heathrow Airport, London reports: Google gets physical in Heathrow

Google tests at providing free wi-fi access in America took its first foot holdings in the UK this week with the announcement that the company is to offer travellers at Heathrow Terminal One free wi-fi to check emails.

In what is also the company’s first physical presence, the search engine is setting up an Internet cafe-style computing booth in London's Heathrow Airport.

The temporary installation, termed Google Space, consists of ten Samsung laptops in the public lounge of Terminal One at London's main airport.

The stand will be staffed by at least two Google employees from 0700 to 1900 every day for the duration of the trial, which will run until 19 December.
Cool & bodes well for some competition against BT / T-Mobile's rather costly (by comparison) offerings...
