Free WiFi

FREE…everyone loves FREE. But there are those that say nothing is free? Well, AT&T doesn’t agree. Last week the mobile provider announced it was opening up 17,000 of its WiFi hotspots for use by iPhone and Blackberry users FREE. Before this generous offer, iPhone and Blackberry users connected to the Internet through AT&T’s 3G or Edge network. These services are good, but I can tell you from first hand knowledge, they are not great. Trust me, a WiFi hotspot blows them away. Hotspots are significantly faster and more reliable than Edge. You are most likely to find AT&T’s hotspots in airports, bookstores, restaurants etc. Ok, so visualize this…you’re an iPhone or Blackberry user. You are sitting in an airport that has an AT&T hotspot and you want to use it, for FREE of course…all you have to do to connect is enter your 10 digit cell phone number. Instantly, you’ll get a text message that provides a link to the AT&T WiFi. Pretty good right? and the link works for 24 hours… for FREE.
