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!

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.

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.
