T-Mobile Does A Bit Of Roaming

While every other WiFi hotspot provider has been shoving each other aside to try to figure out the best roaming deals (“Wayport, please step into my office…”), T-Mobile has stayed pretty quiet on the subject preferring to build out their own hotspots at Starbucks and Borders around the country. They’ve admitted that they needed to do some sort of roaming deal, but were waiting until the situation was right. Well, now they’ve finally signed a roaming deal with iPass, which will open up more business users. It’s pretty clear that T-Mobile is realizing that, for now, business users are about the only people they can expect to pony up a bit of cash to use their hotspots.
