AT&T is doing what Starbucks wouldn’t, offering us free WiFi at Starbucks and other locations that use their network (Previously, you had to have an AT&T Internet or LaptopConnect account or pay for a session). On Thursday, AT&T sent emails to all iPhone customers explaining how to access the free service. The company’s website says iPhone users will be able to access free WiFi using any WiFi-enabled laptop or your iPhone. Seems the magic key is your iPhone phone number.
I’m glad AT&T finally realized WiFi should be free, but I wish they could work on delivering the 3G network I’m actually paying for (I digress).
