Vodafone will not deploy wi-fi hotspots, but will implement roaming
Posted on 29-Sep-2003 08:05 | Filed under: News



The Vodafone Group Plc has confirmed that it will not be installing wireless LAN hotspots - at least in UK. Speaking to ComputerWire, Rikkie Helms, director for Newbury, UK-based Vodafone's mobile office team, said: "We have taken the decision that we won't be delivering wireless hotspots, but will support them using our billing capabilities using SMS messages that can bill to other accounts."

We reported on Geekzone about the first SMS roaming wi-fi payment via SMS, implemented by SingTel (Singapore Telecom).
