AT&T Expands Wi-Fi Footprint in Europe
Posted: 22-May-2006 [Source: AT&T]

[Working with Swiss Company, WeRoam, AT&T announces it now has over 10,000 hot spots in Europe.]

Bedminster, NJ -- AT&T Inc. today announced that it has expanded its global Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) access footprint in new regions throughout Europe. Working with WeRoam, a Swiss-based aggregator of mobility management and roaming-optimization solutions for the mobile and wireless telecommunications sector, AT&T now has more than 10,000 hot spots in Europe, including locations in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Hungary, Ireland, France and Israel. In addition, AT&T now has a strong Wi-Fi footprint through WeRoam in Brazil, Japan and Taiwan.

AT&T's relationship with WeRoam allows AT&T to work with multiple wireless Internet service provider (WISP) networks to further expand and strengthen the company's global Wi-Fi and wired Ethernet footprint. As a result of these multiple relationships, AT&T offers customers improved access capabilities. For example in France, AT&T now offers more than 7,000 locations through Orange via the WeRoam platform that most of its close competitors do not offer today.

These new Wi-Fi hot spots are the latest enhancements to AT&T's Enterprise Mobility Portfolio, which is designed to provide today's workforce with flexible and secure mobile access to their corporate virtual private networks (VPNs). Wi-Fi enables access from home, corporate locations, international airports, hotels and convention centers through remote connection to the network through the AT&T Global Network Client.

AT&T's total Wi-Fi hot spot count available to AT&T Remote Access business customers now exceeds more than 33,000 locations worldwide and will continue to expand as part of AT&T's previously announced $8 billion to $8.5 billion expected capital investment in 2006. As part of this, AT&T operates nearly 11,000 hot spot locations throughout the U.S., including airports, Barnes & Noble bookstores and select McDonald's restaurants.

The availability of these additional hot spots is in follow-up to the announcement made by WeRoam in February 2006.
