Boingo Adds Prague

By Nancy Gohring

Boingo users can now roam into Prague: Boingo made a deal with WideNet, which operates 36 hotspots in Prague. The hotspots are in restaurants, hotels, and shopping centers

In other Prague Wi-Fi news, Jim Sullivan at Wi-Fi FreeSpot just spent some time in Prague where he found some new free hotspots. He describes some of his experiences on his blog and also lists the hotspots in his directory.

New European Hotspot Deals

By Nancy Gohring

A few announcements over the last week indicate further growth in the European hotspot market: Vodafone is chasing T-Mobile territory by partnering with The Cloud for hotspots in Germany. The Cloud says it plans to build a whopping 10,000 hotspots in Germany over the next four years. Vodafone already has 700 hotspots in Germany, The Cloud has 350 there, and T-Mobile has 4,500.

In more marketing-related news, iPass customers will be able to use Telenet’s hotspots in Belgium and soon Luxembourg. Telenet is working towards a goal of 1,000 hotspots by the end of this year.

Here in Ireland, Bitbuzz continues to make deals that are likely to help grow traffic on its network. The operator just made a deal with Nokia where customers that buy the Nokia 9500 Communicator from O2 get 25 hours of use per month for three months. Bitbuzz also has a roaming deal with O2 archrival Vodafone. [Press release should become available here at some point.]

IPass Adds Amsterdam Airport to Network

By Nancy Gohring

The Wi-Fi network in Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport is now available to iPass customers: This announcement includes some interesting statistics on network use at the airport. Attingo offers both wired and wireless access at the airport and doesn’t distinguish between the two in these figures. Still, the company has recorded a remarkable increase in network usage. In 2000, 45,000 users accessed the networks. In 2005, the company is projecting 800,000. The announcement says that marks a twofold increase, which would mean that 400,000 people accessed the networks in 2004. It’s also not clear if these numbers indicate individual connections, or actual individual users (who could access the network multiple times within the year). Attingo also said that in 2000 the average user spent 20 minutes online while they now spend 30 to 40 minutes online.
