It’s been a long and winding road, but it looks like AT&T has finally gotten their act together and is now offering iPhone owners FREE access to their AT&T WiFi HotSpots around the US, including those AT&T WiFi HotSpots in Starbucks coffee houses.
We’ve been expecting AT&T to give iPhone owners free WiFi service through the carrier’s network of thousands of AT&T WiFi HotSpot locations since the No. 1 US wireless carrier mistakenly announced the free WiFi offer several months ago, blaming “human error” for the announcement. AT&T then rolled out the free AT&T WiFi service again for iPhone owners, before taking the offer off the table the next day.
This time around, the free AT&T WiFi HotSpot access looks legit and bound to stick around for the long-haul. iPhone owners will now have free access to all of AT&T’s WiFi locations strewn across the US. So, between AT&T’s 3G network and AT&T’s WiFi HotSpots, iPhone 3G users are sure to have quick access to the web whenever and wherever they might need it.
