AT&T announced today that iPhone users can access AT&T wi-fi hot spots free of charge. In an update to their website, the phone carrier stated:
“AT&T knows Wi-Fi is hot, and FREE Wi-Fi is even hotter. Which is why FREE AT&T Wi-Fi access is now available for Apple iPhone at thousands of hotspots nationwide, including Starbucks*. Users can relax and access music, email and web browsing services with their favorite blend in hand from the comfort of their nearest location.”
Wow, AT&T sure likes using the word ‘hot’. In any event, this should be good news for iPhone users who can’t get their info fast enough even at 3G speeds. And this should also help alleviate some of the bandwith problems AT&T’s 3G network has experienced in the past, which in turn, might end up improving 3G speeds overall. A win win for all parties involved!
