AT&T to open hotspots



By

Associated Press (Google) reports that AT&T will begin offering its premium broadband customers "free" access to its 10,000 wi-fi hotspots nationwide from next week.

"It's a differentiator for us when people are choosing between competitors," said Fletcher Cook, spokesman.

AT&T iPhone customers currently must pay for a wi-fi package to use their handsets at the company's hotspots, but they now can use their iPhones at hotspots for free if they are also AT&T premium broadband subscribers.

Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of AT&T's broadband customers subscribe to the company's non-premium 1.5Mbps service and aren't eligible for free hotspot access.

Editor's note: This sounds like a good deal for iPhone users that are already AT&T broadband subscribers.

However, if you're on cable with someone else, even a bad bandwidth day is probably faster than DSL...

What's your take?

Apple TV! Now with movie rentals. From $229. Free shipping.
