Seattle, Portland, Bozeman hubs also part of holiday program starting this week

Tech company Google is providing free airport wireless connections at 47 U.S. airports for the holiday season. Spokane, Seattle, Portland and Bozeman are in that group.

The promotion is being provided through a partnership with Boingo Wireless, a nationwide Wi-Fi provider. The service is set to start this week and continue until Jan. 15.

The free service is available only in public areas within buildings, not outside on driveways or tarmacs, according to a Google press release.

Along with the free connection, Google will ask users to make an optional donation to one of several charities. Google will match the donations made across all the networks up to $250,000.
