Starting this week, millions of Verizon High Speed Internet and Fios Internet customers will have access to thousands of wireless hotspots across the country. Verizon has teamed up with Boingo to provide the hotspots, which will provide high speed internet access at locations at various public places including many hotels, airports, restaurants, coffee shops, retailers, and convention centers.
This new feature pairs nicely with the current free Compaq Netbook promotion that Verizon is running. It’s apparent that broadband access is morphing into a more seamless, go anywhere product. In the future we can expect home broadband, wifi hotspots, and wireless 3G/4G broadband, and Wimax to become a single seamless product offering.
