It seems like IPv4 and 6 are all ready free. Nobody (that I know of) sells an IP address. It's just that access to the network requires physical equipment. Physical equipment costs money and has bandwidth limitations. Thus the ISPs charge money for access.
Free Internet access via Google or whomever, is not actually free. It is just paid for by Google and offered at no charge. So I would say no probably not.
