Original post made on Jul 16, 2009

It's a "BASE station", not a "bay station".

Google should install base stations at Whisman Park in Whisman Station. We need Wifi here and it's public property.

The network is not useful for last and more than 6 month from Summer 2012 because it sick with damaged network packets. The malfunction is typically pointed to broken memory module on network router.
While the users complaint to dedicated for support Google group, and find different ways to contact Google with this problem, there is no actions, no support and no reply from Google.
Too bad for the project. The people going nervous, can't update or damaged their PC, can't paid taxes using this connection, can't work from home and finally switching out of this service. Stay away from this problem. Shame for Google.
