Google TiSP FREE in-home wireless broadband service April Fools Prank 2007

Another hiilarious April Fools Prank by Google was played in 2007. Google claimed to offer free broadband service with all hardware and installation kits free.

When studying the material (nicely done!) you'll crack up!
"Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end system that provides in-home wireless access by connecting your commode-based TiSP wireless router to one of thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines."

Installation instructions elaborate on the "freely delivered" installation kit to be used in your toilet. There is even an Enterprise Version:

"We're actively developing a higher-performance version of TiSP specifically tailored to small and medium-sized businesses, including 24-hour, on-site technical support in the event of backup problems, brownouts and data wipes."

AAA+++ April Fools, see it here.
