T-Mobile HotSpot users can use wi-fi while roaming in six countries
Posted on 11-Nov-2004 09:53 | Tags Filed under: News



T-Mobile HotSpot has announced its participation with the WBA in a series of roaming agreements with six other major international wireless operators.

T-Mobile USA subscribers will now be able to take their Wi-Fi subscription to the participating WBA carrier member countries. Together with existing roaming arrangements, subscribers can now connect to wireless services with access to information, communications and entertainment at more than 11,500 Wi-Fi locations within the following countries: United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Italy, Czech Republic, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and the United States.

Participating WBA members include: BT Group (UK), Telecom Italia (Italy), Maxis (Malaysia), NTT Com (Japan), StarHub (Singapore), Telstra (Australia), T-Mobile USA (USA) and, through existing arrangements, the European operating companies of T-Mobile in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. It is expected that additional international carriers in Europe and Asia will join in the roaming arrangements in the near future, further broadening the WBA footprint into which T-Mobile HotSpot subscribers can roam with a single Wi-Fi account.

T-Mobile HotSpot US subscribers will be able to benefit from these international roaming arrangements at no additional charge through the remainder of 2004. Prices for international roaming in 2005 and beyond will be determined at a later time.

T-Mobile HotSpot subscribers wishing to login at an international WBA location must first launch their browser, at which point they will be presented with the WBA member's roaming login page. Next, they should click on, or select, the "roaming" link and choose T-Mobile HotSpot U.S. from the list of roaming partners.
