iPass T-Mobile hotspot service

March 18, 2004

Below is the iPass press release about new iPass T-Mobile hotspot coverage. See our SCS-specific iPass T-Mobile hotspot documentation for additional information, including usage instructions and restrictions.

Over 4,200 T-Mobile Hotspots in North America were made active in the iPassConnect access point directory on March 5, 2004. Customers can now access the T-Mobile HotSpot network using the same iPass Corporate Access service they depend on to stay connected to important office information.

With the activation of T-Mobile Hotspot, iPass has extended its lead in broadband roaming footprint with coverage incorporating over 50% of the known commercial hotspots in the US and 25% of the world's hotspots. T-Mobile operates the largest carrier owned Wi-Fi (802.11b) wireless broadband network in the U.S. Locations include Starbucks coffeehouses, Borders Books and Music stores, Kinko's business centers, numerous airports and selected American Airlines Admirals Clubs, Delta Air Lines Crown Room Clubs, United Airlines Red Carpet Clubs and US Airways Clubs.

Also, iPass launched over 120 new Global Broadband Roaming hotspots in in the Seattle, Washington area. The new footprint adds locations including Barnes and Noble Booksellers, McDonald's and Tully's.

Two new airports were also added in February, providing coverage at the Atlanta Hartsfield and Detroit McNamara Airports.
