iPass Roaming Exceeds 35,000 Live Wi-Fi Venues

The iPass Global Broadband Roaming network has exceeded 35,000 live Wi-Fi venues, surpassing the company's own commitment for 2005 by more than 5,000 venues. The iPass virtual network delivers Wi-Fi access in 57 countries, focusing on access for business travellers.

To grow the iPass Global Broadband Roaming Wi-Fi footprint beyond 35,000 venues, iPass has integrated more than 70 disparate Wi-Fi hotspot providers -- including recognized leaders such as T-Mobile Hotspot in the United States, BT OpenZone in the UK and China Telecom -- into a single virtual network.

During the second half of 2005, iPass added a substantial number of hotspots from new network integrations. In November, iPass added approximately 9,600 KT hotspots in South Korea, including Inchon International Airport (ICN), and more than 2,500 hotspots from Japan Telecom.
