Nine UK city centre hotzones, including Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh, will also go live in the coming months, plus The Cloud's City of London "Square Mile Network" in late 2006.

iPass expects to activate The Cloud's network by the middle of April, At this time, the iPass network is expected to include over 50,000 wireless hotspots and venues around the world. As part of the integration process, Wi-Fi hotspots and urban hotzones in The Cloud's network have been going through the rigorous iPass Enterprise Ready certification program. The program works to ensure interoperability with common policy and security tools that business customers use.
