Geekzone New Feature: Wi-Fi Access Points Search in Your Region
Seeing that lots of our readers are always connected, and sometimes via wireless networks I thought we could add a good and interesting tool to help those users find access points wherever they are.

You will see a new search box "Wi-Fi Hostpot Finder" in our front page, content pages and in our special Wi-Fi Hotspot Finder page.

The search box retrieves results stored on a database with more than 67,500 hotspots from around the world, including paid and free hotspots, presenting these results on a list you can browse (and where available click through on-line maps).

This is in addition to other on-line services we offer here, including the Google Search and the PriceGrabber Comparison Shopping (all search boxes are always close to each other).

In the near future the company providing the database will be able to accept suggestions of new Wi-Fi hotspots, so it will become a larger source of information.
