Verizon Wireless to offer branded WiFi through Wayport

Verizon Wireless today said it will offer a branded WiFi hotspot service through Wayport’s nationwide network. The service will be available for either $6.99 for a day pass or $34.99 per month for unlimited data use. Verizon Wireless said it is interested in expanding its WiFi coverage beyond the initial agreement with Wayport and said it will do so through additional roaming agreements. The carrier said it may also offer combined WiFi coverage through co-parent Verizon Communications’ payphone-based hotspot service in New York City but did not give any additional details. Verizon Wireless is the latest U.S. carrier to offer branded hotspot service though Wayport’s network. Both AT&T Wireless and Sprint PCS signed similar deals in recent months. [FierceWireless]
