Qwest customers get AT&T hotspots for free

Qwest made a deal with AT&T and scored free access to AT&T’s hotspots for Qwest’s home customers. According to TwinCities.com, “Qwest said its studies showed one in five Twin Cities residents reported using Wi-Fi most often when outside the home, and 87 percent said they accessed Wi-Fi most often in a coffee shop, restaurant, bookstore or library. Free Wi-Fi is not uncommon in those locales, but it is not universal.”

I use public wifi nearly daily – but I rarely pay for it. In fact in the last year, I know that I paid $5 for daylong access on the U of M Morris campus last fall and in an airport last summer. Maybe the next iteration of this offer could include mobile broadband access – that I could use!
