T-Mobile HotspotOne of the things that I’ve learned on the PowerPage World Tour is the value of a good WiFi hotspot. In the U.S. I’ve been using T-Mobile’s hotspot network which is prevalent at most Starbucks, FedEx/Kinkos, Borders, Hyatt hotels and airline clubs in airports. The best deal going on WiFi is for subscribers to T-Mobile mobile phone plans. You can add an unlimited hotspot account to you T-Mo mobile phone for only US$20 more per month. The great news is that you can use your T-Mo Hotspot account across Europe by simply appending “@t-mobile.us” to your user name. So for the same US$20 per month you get unlimited hotspot access in places like Amsterdam and the UK courtesy of T-Mobile’s partnership with British Telecom, BT Openzone. It sure beats payings 30 Euros per day at the NH Krasnapolsky Hotel – with a 250MB download cap! T-Mo’s $20 hotspot plan is an O’Grady’s PowerPick.
