AT&T buys Wayport for $275 million: more Wi-Fi hotspots for its customers

AT&T, North America’s largest mobile carrier (for now, at least), announced today that it will buy Wayport, a managed Wi-Fi services provider, for $275 million in cash.

So what does this mean for AT&T customers? First of all, the addition of lots of new hotspots across the US, which raise the total number of domestic AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots to almost 20,000. 

Do have in mind that Wayport’s hotspots are in important locations, such as: famous hotels (Four Seasons, Wyndham, Marriott Vacation Club), McDonald’s restaurants, HealthSouth and Sun Healthcare locations.

Here is a map with Wayport’s US hotspots, as presented by the company itself:

After AT&T completes the buyout of Wayport (as early as the end of 2008), millions of subscribers will be able to access the new hotspots, as long as they have a compatible device.  

We all know that Wi-Fi is now embedded into more and more handsets, so AT&T’s new acquisition seems perfectly justified, even if we’re talking about $275 million.
