Submitted by suraj.sun
suraj.sun (1348507) writes "Starting Monday (July 27), the company will expand Internet connection capabilities for millions of Verizon broadband customers by providing them free access to thousands of Wi-Fi connections across the U.S., reflecting the company's sharp focus on developing and deploying broadband and entertainment services.

New Verizon FiOS Internet customers who order an up-to- 25/15 Mbps* (megabits per second) or faster connection, or new HSI customers who order an up-to- 3 Mbps/768 Kbps* (kilobits per second) or up-to- 7.1 Mbps/768 Kbps* connection, can connect to the new Verizon Wi-Fi hot spots, at no additional charge as part of their broadband service.

The new WiFi service is also available free of charge for existing FiOS Internet customers with up-to-20 Mbps or faster packages and existing HSI customers who have either an up-to-3 Mbps or up-to- 7.1 Mbps package.

Free Verizon Wi-Fi hot spot locations include hotels, airports, restaurants, coffee shops, retailers, convention centers and public locations across the U.S. For a list of hot spot locations, visit verizon.net/hotspots ( http://www.verizon.net/central/portlets/broadbandWiFi/hotSpotSearch.jsp ).

Qualifying FiOS Internet and HSI customers can log on to www.verizon.net and use their Verizon username and password to download software for free Wi-Fi access at the Verizon hot spots.
