Eclipse Offers Free Public Wi-Fi

Posted: 25th Nov, 2004 By: MarkJ
Eclipse has announced the launch of its ROAM public Wi-Fi service, which is free until 31st December 2004. ROAM enables existing users to access their account and the Internet via any BT Openzone hotspot:

Connectivity is available nationwide at airport and hotel lounges, food outlets, motorway service stations and railway station concourses. A complete list of access points is available on the company's website at http://www.eclipsebroadband.com

Mark Lang, founder of Eclipse Internet and Director of Broadband and ISP Development for the Kingston Communications Group said "We are continually looking for ways to provide added value. We have a growing number of business customers and increasingly many of these have to travel as part of their work. When they are away from their office they still need access to their company IT network and our new ROAM public Wi-Fi service will allow them to achieve that simply and cost-effectively. Now 'on the move' secure access to email and the Internet is as easy as calling your office from a mobile telephone."

Lang added: "Our new product is designed to complement the BT Openzone infrastructure. Eclipse is one of the first BT Wholesale ISPs to offer the BT Openzone wireless broadband service to its customers. We have an established reputation for innovation and we are delighted to be at the forefront of the market again with this flexible service."

Chris Clark, CEO BT Wireless Broadband, said, "This initiative by Eclipse will take advantage of the thousands of BT Openzone hotspots we have installed - and new sites are being added every day. By enhancing its unique FLEX Broadband product family with the addition of wireless broadband access, Eclipse is continuing its philosophy of being first to market with innovative services."

ROAM public Wi-Fi users can connect to their company's secure network* at broadband speeds, hence enabling them to access the very latest figures, drawings, presentations etc. whilst travelling. Logging on is an easy process and can be achieved with minimal fuss. No wires are required - all that users need is a PDA or a laptop with WLAN connectivity, and a valid Eclipse connection account. To access the service, users simply need to be within a 50-100m range of a BT Openzone location. Eclipse customers using the new ROAM public Wi-Fi service will simply have their connection time added to their monthly bill, thus ensuring continuity of service and the elimination of the inconvenience caused by some other payment methods.


The service is accessible to any of Eclipse's customers, be they dialup or broadband connected.
