Microsoft Partners for Free Wi-Fi in Portland, Oregon

Microsoft announced a partnership with MetroFi Inc. to provide an advertising-supported, free Wi-Fi network throughout Portland, Oregon. The two companies also plan to use the Microsoft adCenter platform to help advertisers reach local Wi-Fi users. The companies hope to eventually provide the service to 95% of the city.

The Portland Wi-Fi network will be operated by MetroFi and will be modeled on wireless broadband networks that MetroFi built and currently operates in Foster City, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, downtown San Jose and Concord, California.
