Via GigaOm: VerizonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Affair With Wi-Fi Heats Up
This new plan only applies to people who subscribe to Verizon’s Mobile wireless broadband service focused on notebook/netbook users. This includes those who have a MiFi. These customers now have access to Verizon WiFi hotspots in the U.S. Verizon’s WiFi network looks relatively limited compared to AT&T’s (a reverse of their 3G network situation). This does not apply to those of us with 3G phones like the Droid.
More information about the Verizon Wi-Fi service, including the 105 cities served (none in my home town, btw), is found at:
