AT&T recently announced that it was going to provide free access to it’s nationwide Wi-Fi network to all of it’s qualifying DSL customers. I use this service myself, and it’s quite handy to have free access to hotspots near McDonalds restuarants, UPS Store outlets, and Barnes and Noble bookstores. This service previously cost $1.99 extra per month for DSL customers, but now it’s free!
AT&T Inc. announced that millions of its customers with higher speed broadband plans can now receive free access to AT&T’s nationwide Wi-Fi network – nearly 10,000 hot spots at popular locations across the country including leading airports, McDonalds restaurants, Barnes & Noble bookstores, coffee shops and popular sporting venues.
With the proliferation of Wi-Fi-enabled devices including, most recently, the iPhone but also laptops, wireless music systems and PDAs, consumers are increasingly looking for on-the-go Internet connections. As the nation’s premier provider of broadband service and with the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network, AT&T offers consumers more high speed in more places.
Effective now, qualifying new and existing residential and small business AT&T broadband customers instantly benefit from the free unlimited Wi-Fi connectivity at company hot spots. Qualifying AT&T broadband packages include: AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet Pro (up to 3.0 Mbps downstream), AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet Elite (up to 6.0 Mbps downstream), FastAccess Xtreme (up to 3.0 Mbps downstream) and FastAccess Xtreme 6.0 (up to 6.0 Mbps downstream).
So if you are a DSL (broadband) customer and had originally paid for this service, you might want to call your local business office to confirm that your account now includes this service for free.
If you are a DSL (broadband) customer and never bought this service previously, call your local business office and confirm that your account qualifies, then request they add it to your AT&T account!
Having reviewed the Anaconda 5 with my Booq Python XL review last August, I can personally attest to the high quality materials used in this premium case. Only because I will not be needing the extra room in the Anaconda 5 added for iPhone support, I will continue using it for my Treo 700wx. But for those of you with iPhone’s in your future, I thought you would be interested in the following:
