[Roaming deal in three US airports, Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco, to be enabled mid-year.]
T-Mobile USA and AT&T Wireless yesterday announced a W-LAN roaming agreement for three international airports: Denver (DIA), Philadelphia (PHL) and San Francisco (SFO). The announcement marks the first W-LAN roaming agreement between the two operators.
As a result of this roaming agreement, T-Mobile HotSpot subscribers can soon add DIA and PHL to the list of hotspot locations available to them to stay connected to the Internet, access their corporate networks, or check e-mail via a Wi-Fi enabled laptop or PDA. For AT&T Wireless Wi-Fi customers, the roaming agreement means they will be able to use their Wi-Fi device throughout the public areas of SFO. The companies' respective customers will be able to roam using their existing user ID and password.
"We're pleased to offer our T-Mobile HotSpot subscribers the added value this roaming agreement brings," said Joe Sims vice president and general manager of T-Mobile HotSpot. "In addition to more than 4,000 convenient locations our subscribers can visit today, they will soon have even more airports where they can stay connected to important information during a layover or waiting for their flight."
The parties expect to complete integration efforts and enable roaming in mid-2004.
