AT&T Wi-Fi Network is Really Taking Off

head-out-window Joey let me know that AT&T put out a press release stating that their Wi-Fi hotspots served over 85 million connections in 2009. That is 4 times as much as what they served up in 2008. The forth quarter of 2009 alone showed 35.3 million Wi-Fi connections from AT&T customers which is more than the whole first half of 2009.

From AT&T’s press release:

More and more customers are choosing Wi-Fi for its simple, reliable and fast connection and for its convenience. With the rapid rise of Wi-Fi enabled smartphones and integrated devices, connections from these devices now comprise the majority of connections made on AT&T’s Wi-Fi network. Smartphones and integrated devices accounted for 72 percent of fourth-quarter connections and 61 percent of the total connections in 2009.

Even AT&T admits that users are using their hotspots for its simplicity and reliability. I wish I could say the same for AT&T’s voice calls (Call Failed :() and spotty 3G service in NYC. Still if you are an AT&T Wireless customer and not using their Wi-Fi service you really should start taking advantage of it. You can find all the available Wi-Fi spots at

  1. My big first question (needing more research) is how to use a T-Mobile BlackBerry with the AT&T wifi hotspots. Can anyone help?

  2. “Taking off” due to all the iPhone folks hopping on wifi when they can’t get a reliable data connection over ATT 3G??? 😉
