For years, T-Mobile has been ahead of other telcos in rolling out hip Wi-Fi hot spots. Well, that's no longer the case. According to this article, telco AT&T now has twice as many hot spots as T-Mobile.
Cudos to AT&T which, in my opinion, is doing a great job reinventing itself from a stodgy telephone company and into a next-generation communications services provider. It's been trying out interesting Web TV services. It's been tinkering with new types of wireless offerings. And it's rolled out a huge Wi-Fi network. It seems to me that, of all established telcos, AT&T is one of the more open to new technologies, services and business models.
