Free wi-fi to debut at South Station

Officials at Google announced Thursday that they are sponsoring wireless Internet access throughout South Station, in partnership with Biederman Redevelopment Ventures. The partnership with Google and Biederman Redevelopment Ventures is part of the MBTA’s wider efforts to outsource wireless Internet service in stations and on trains and ferries to outside vendors. T officials believe companies are willing to provide wi-fi for free in exchange for advertisements and the ability to control the first Web page that users see when they log onto the Internet service.
