Free AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots

AT&T has announced its intentions to open up its Wi-Fi hotspots to select broadband customers. The Associated Press reports that subscribers to the company's Pro, Elite and FastAccess plans will soon be able to connect to any of the official hotspots for free, which number to about 10,000 across the US in locations such as airports, bookstores, restaurants and coffee shops. Subscribers with cheaper plans will be able to pay $2 per month for the same access, or $8 per day if they are non-subscribers. No reason for the discount has been given, but the move likely coincides with the launch of the iPhone, which depends heavily on Wi-Fi as a selling point.

    What about me?

    Okay, I'm not going to change Internet providers for Wi-Fi access... but I wish I could get a deal on it. What about a deal for AT&T Wireless customers (you know, the people who already have iPhones)?
