| FirstSpot and Tadaa
Wireless to offer bilateral roaming
Santa Monica, CA & Montreal, PQ (May 1, 2004)
Wi-Fi hotspots in Eastern Canada and Southern California are now available
to subscribers at no extra charge.
Enhancing the North American wireless hotspot market, FirstSpot, Inc and Tadaa
Wireless are now offering equal access across each network to their subscribers
at no extra charge. FirstSpot's customers will have access to 80 locations mainly
in Quebec and Ontario, while Tadaa customers can tap into cities across the United States.
The move is advantageous for customers of both networks as it simplifies access.
What used to be a time-consuming process of creating new accounts and paying
additional fees for access time is now as simple as entering in the customers
home account information.
"Roaming is a core focus for FirstSpot, and we're thrilled to welcome Tadaa subscribers
to our network," states R. Anthony Bell, CEO of FirstSpot. "For our customers
this agreement adds 80 more locations to the network of 2000 locations we currently
offer access to in Canada, US, UK, Asia and Europe. Our customers constantly
request more roaming locations and we are pleased to include these excellent
Quebec and Ontario sites."
"This agreement solidifies the business model and need for carriers to work together
to better serve customers by ultimately providing ubiquitous Wi-Fi access globally",
says Daniel Yeboah Jr., CEO of Tadaa Wireless.
Wireless Internet access, based on the 802.11b or Wi-Fi standard, is more popular
than ever. Most manufacturers of laptops are including wireless hardware as part
of their standard configuration, and new hotspots are unwiring daily.
