T-Mobile USA expands Wi-Fi services
Posted on 13-Jun-2005 23:44 | Filed under: News



T-Mobile HotSpot, the wireless LAN access service from T-Mobile USA. is announced strong customer growth and usage statistics, and new roaming relationships.

The company says that customers are accessing the service more frequently, using the service for longer periods of time and are moving more data across the network. Customers typically spend 64 minutes online per session, up from 45 minutes last year.

T-Mobile HotSpot today serves more than 450,000 unique customers who have paid for T-Mobile HotSpot service in the past 90 days.

"The T-Mobile HotSpot network allows our customers to stay connected to what matters most to them," said Joe Sims, vice president and general manager of T-Mobile HotSpot. "We're pleased to see customers using T-Mobile HotSpot to access rich content. In December 2004, we moved over 10 terabytes of data across the network and that grew to 17.5 terabytes in May 2005 --that's equal to more than 4.32 billion pages of text lined up from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Chicago, Illinois!"

In addition to customer growth, T-Mobile HotSpot today announced plans to expand its service through new roaming relationships. Users will be able to access wireless hotspots in more hotel rooms, thanks to a roaming agreement with iBAHN (formerly STSN), with which T-Mobile HotSpot plans to expand its hotel presence by more than 100,000 rooms across more than 525 hotels. T-Mobile HotSpot customers will be able to use their existing username and password at many Marriott, Hilton, Ritz-Carlton, Doubletree, and Renaissance properties.

The operator is also extending its presence in airports. The service will cover another 39 airports, more than doubling its North American airport footprint to a total of 72 airports. Agreements with Concourse Communications Group and Opti-Fi will provide for roaming access in the public areas at major airports including: Chicago O'Hare, JFK, LaGuardia, Newark, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and a host of regional airports.

T-Mobile HotSpot has also entered into roaming agreements to allow subscribers roaming access at more than 9,300 new international Wireless Broadband Alliance roaming partner locations. Access in new countries includes: France (Orange France), Switzerland (Swisscom Mobile), Portugal (Portugal Telecom) and the Philippines (ePLDT).

As a result of these roaming agreements, T-Mobile HotSpot plans to provide more than 9,800 new roaming locations which will give subscribers wireless broadband access at more than 25,000 total locations, across 17 countries, throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
