Google acquires Webpass


Google recently announced it acquired San Francisco-based Internet service provider Webpass. The move means the search giant will now be able to expand the reach of Google Fiber, which is its own fiber-to-the-premises Internet and cable TV service in the US. More significantly, the acquisition will allow Google to have a look at pCell, a breakthrough wireless antenna that Webpass is helping to test. Developed by Steve Perlman of Artemis Network, pCell technology gives users their own wireless Internet bubble that follows them around, and provides full speed mobile Internet service, no matter how many people are in the area. According to sources, Artemis Network has agreed to continue to work with Webpass after the merger with Google Fiber. Industry observers predict the collective technologies of Google Fiber, Webpass and Artemis Network may pave the way for speedier Internet connection for everyone.
