T-Mobile wi-fi HotSpot free in Germany until Feb 2004
T-Mobile Germany is offering free wi-fi access until 29 February 2004. As part of a strategy to increase its presence in the wi-fi market, the operator isproviding free access to its HotSpot network for a limited time. This has been made possible thanks to a strategic cooperation agreement between the Deutsche Telekom Divisions, T-Com and T-Mobile. Together these Group Divisions will significantly increase the number of public wi-fi hotspots in Germany in the coming years.

A document in Adobe Acrobat format provides instructions in English and German on how to configure and access the wi-fi network. It also explains how to use the SMS service to receive a usercode and password if you're not a T-Mobile customer yet.

Over 5,200 public Hotspots will enable wireless Internet surfing throughout Germany by the end of 2004. T-Com’s fixed line division is focusing on public places that see primarily private use, such as restaurants and cafés. At the same time, T-Mobile is expanding essentially in business locations, such as airports, trade fairs, and hotels. Use of the public wi-fi will be free of charge to the end of February 2004.

By the end of this year, T-Com will begin operations of its first 30 HotSpot locations in selected cafés and restaurants in Bonn, Cologne, and Düsseldorf. T-Com is planning on setting up about 4,000 Hotspots in 2004.

In that same period, T-Mobile will be expanding its HotSpot offerings in Germany to over 1,200 business locations. The mobile communications market leader is continuing to equip primarily airports, hotels, trade fairs, and convention centers, as well as other locations interesting for professional users with this fast communications technology. Beginning immediately, for example, travelers at the Cologne/Bonn airport can put their waiting time to good use. The HotSpot service is available in the arrival and departure areas of both terminals, enabling passengers to check the corporate Intranet, look around on the Internet, or go over important e-mail.
