NTT Com Offers Free WLAN for Eye-Fi Cards

NTT Communications has begun offering free upload connectivity via its HOTSPOT public wireless local area network (WLAN) in Japan to anyone, including non-subscribers to HOTSPOT, to all Eye-Fi users.

The service allows users to upload photos and videos from cameras, camcorders and other portable devices that are equipped with either the Eye-Fi Share or Eye-Fi Share Video, which are standard-sized SD memory cards with built-in Wi-Fi capability and marketed by Eye-Fi Japan K.

HOTSPOT connect is accessible in some parts of standard service areas of HOTSPOT nationwide, including all Toei subway stations in the Tokyo area.

In the future, HOTSPOT connect will support additional Internet services and websites, providing users with convenient wireless connection to the Internet away from the home or office.
