Alltel, Boingo offer Wi-Fi

Cell phone network provider Alltel today announced it teamed up with Wi-Fi network hotspot provider Boingo to expand Wi-Fi access to over 25,000 hotspots in stores, coffee shops and hotels across the US. Plans will be offered to existing Alltel subscribers, or anyone else on a daily or monthly basis without a contract. The company is also offering a Premium service for frequent travelers, which expands those hotspots to include hundreds of airports in the US and thousands more hotspots in Canada, Mexico and Europe.

No-contract, unlimited Wi-Fi access at the 25,000 nationwide hotspots costs about $20 monthly or $4 daily. Current subscribers can add the Premium Wi-Fi service for $10 a month. For $70, Alltel Wireless offers an Internet Anywhere Bundle that will allow subscribers to access the Internet on their laptops through a hotspot or via Alltel's recently announced EVDO Rev. A network. This plan includes a wireless Internet card.
