    Verizon Wireless jumps on free Wi-Fi bandwagon, but not for smartphones

    Advertisement



    Verizon Wireless has finally jumped on the bandwagon, offering free Wi-Fi to subscribers, but only those customers that have signed up for Mobile Broadband and Global Access mobile data plans and using broadband via USB modems, PC cards and netbooks. The plan isn't covering Verizon's Wi-Fi-enabled smartphones such as the Motorola Droid.

    I guess they're trying to make the Broadband more attractive for the money which, IMO, isn't insignificant. $60 more a month is a chunk unless you have a real business use for it and that's for the 5gb plan. I don't so I'll "suffer" with my little, limited small screen smart phone. I could use an upgrade from my 8330 tho - maybe I'll check into that.

    What is it with Verizon and WiFi?

    Anyone know why they don't follow other carriers? No one pays for WiFi other than the device to broadcast it.

    Do other plans offer wi-fi free to their broadband users?
