Irvine, Calif. -- Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD) will launch MyConnect(TM), a mobile Internet access service designed to provide notebook users with a single, cost-effective solution for remote connectivity at more than 20,000 access points in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia.
Available beginning July 23, the convenient and easy-to-use MyConnect service allows notebook users to enjoy Internet access at airports, hotels, coffee shops and other locations across the United States via Wi-Fi hotspots, wired broadband or dial-up access methods using a single monthly subscription plan.
The evolution of remote connectivity, from dial-up to broadband and Wi-Fi, has forced mobile computer users to deal with a varied assortment of networks, user authentication processes, billing methods and support services. The MyConnect Internet access service simplifies the process with a seamless user experience under one access plan and bill, regardless of the connectivity environment and eliminating the need to sign up with multiple service providers.
"The MyConnect Internet access service is the only connectivity plan notebook users will ever need - it's a total remote Internet access solution," said Taro Hiyama, vice president of marketing, Toshiba DPD.
Toshiba is the first PC OEM to offer an integrated Internet access service for its mobile computing products for all market segments and customers. The company is working with GoRemote Internet Communications, Inc., a leader in managed remote solutions to develop the MyConnect service. Using GoRemote's virtual footprint, Toshiba has created a distinctive solution for the mobile marketplace.
