Global roaming expert’s iPass have surpassed their 2005 target (30K) by providing access to 35,000 broadband wireless (Wi-Fi) hotspots worldwide:

The iPass virtual network delivers Wi-Fi access in 57 countries and includes some of the most important worldwide venues for the business traveller. Through Connexion by Boeing, iPass offers its customer services on international flights. The Connexion by Boeing service is available today on more than 130 daily flights offered by Lufthansa, SAS, Japan Airlines, ANA, Singapore Airlines, China Airlines, Korean Air, Asiana Airlines and El Al Israel Airlines.

iPass provides Wi-Fi services to passengers at more than 240 airports including 64 of the world’s largest 100 airports (as measured by passenger volume) such as Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), London Heathrow Airport (LHR) and Haneda International Airport in Tokyo (HND). There are more than 5,000 hotels with iPass Wi-Fi service including hotels in the Marriott, Hyatt and Radisson chains.

To grow the iPass Global Broadband Roaming Wi-Fi footprint beyond 35,000 venues, iPass has integrated more than 70 disparate Wi-Fi hotspot providers - including recognised leaders such as T-Mobile Hotspot in the United States, BT OpenZone in the United Kingdom and China Telecom in China - into a single virtual network.

During the second half of 2005, iPass added a substantial number of hotspots from new network integrations. In November, iPass added approximately 9,600 KT hotspots in South Korea, including Inchon International Airport (ICN), and more than 2,500 hotspots from Japan Telecom. iPass also integrated major airport venues during 2005 including Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), Hong Kong International (HKG), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Los Angels International (LAX) and Boston Logan (BOS).
