Sprint PCS has issued a press release regarding the availability of “WiFi ZONES” in 800 locations.
Press Release from Sprint PCS.
To complement Sprint PCS’s wireless 1xRTT data service, they are going to launch 800 WiFi hotspots under the Sprint PCS brand and work with other providers of WiFi services (Airpath and Wayport) to better provide coverage.
Think of it as “roaming” for WiFi.
Presently it is not available to be billed to your monthly mobile bill, but apparently this will be added later. More details about this service will be covered here as they are available. No word on support for Mac OS X customers on this service, the press release mentions special software called the “PCS Connection Manager,” which will be available online and in stores once the service is available.
