    I was just curious because this would be another way to go to get more use of the iPhone's Wi-Fi capabilities. I think it would be great if they offered a packaged deal for iPhone subscribers.

    Well, I def. would like to hear everyone's feedback. AND YES, the FREE is for current Broadband subscribers. You can view other price ranges at
    www.attwifi.com for non-subscribers.

    Have a great day everyone!!!

    I totally agree with both of you. It def. would have been nice to have something like that offered with the iPhone package.

    No. I already have a Sprint broadband card for my MBP for when I am out on the road, I can connect anywhere.

    But if its everywhere you are and you can drop the EDGE data service, wouldn't you net out at the same price...20 extra bucks a month? I'm actually tempted because thier coverage in NYC seems pretty great and its even in my apt building, so I could technically drop my regular cable provider's internet.

    AT&T should include free wi-fi with the data plan. Doesn't T-Mobile include T-Mobile Hotspots with their $20 a month unlimited EDGE plan?

    They consider this connected to their broadband Internet service and not their cell phone service. You can get it for $5 a month if you use their broadband internet.

    I've used the free ATT wifi (I have their DSL at home) at airports before. It was handy to have a free internet connection while waiting for flights. Never seen it anywhere else though, T-mobile has the coffee shop/bookstore wifi market cornered in my area, or shops run their own free wifi networks for customers.

    I've had AT&T...

    broadband 3.0 since I've been with their wireless, so it should be a nice FREEBIE to have free WiFi at those hot spots. :cool:
