Company launches service to find wi-fi hotspots via SMS
British users now have a SMS service that will inform them of nearby wireless access points, depending on cell site information collected when the SMS with the inquiry is sent.

Currently the system works with the Vodafone, Orange, O2 and T-Mobile GSM networks in the UK, but the company is worki with 3 UK to have the service available on its network too.

Users have just to send the word "hotspot" to 84140, and a reply with name, address and telephone number of the nearest wi-fi spot is then sent back, at a 1 cost per inquiry.
