SBC Communications announced a series of agreements that will significantly expand its Wi-Fi service coverage area. Specifically Caribou Coffee will transform its 300 coffee shops into Wi-Fi hot spots in Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. SBC has also signed Wi-Fi roaming agreements with Concourse, Telmex (the company's first international roaming agreement), Wise Technologies, GoRemote, iPass and Syniverse.

Later this year, SBC's FreedomLink Wi-Fi service will be bundled with SBC Yahoo! DSL and offered at a significant discount to SBC Yahoo! DSL subscribers. The company plans to have 20,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in service by 2006.
