iPass Wi-Fi network exceeds 1m wireless hotspots
The number of wireless broadband hotspots operated by iPass has exceeded one million worldwide.
Enterprise customers are able to use the Wi-Fi service - known as the iPass Mobile Network - wherever they are in the world.
Subscribers can access the hotspots through the iPass Open Mobile Platform, while telecom operators can also use the service to provide customers with mobile data without incurring high roaming costs.
The iPass Mobile Network is currently operational in over 56,000 hotels, 2,600 airports and 61,000 other public hotspots.
President and vice-president of network services at iPass Marcio Avillez described Wi-Fi as "the perfect complement to a cellular offering" for users who frequently travel.
"There is a momentous change happening in how we interact and communicate in this increasingly real-time connected world where devices are cheap and networks are expensive," added Evan Kaplan, president and chief executive officer of the company.
Providing Wi-Fi access while on the road can boost productivity among a workforce that is frequently out of the office.
Recent iPass research found 60 per cent of remote working employees regularly work between 50 and 60-hour weeks as a result of improved connectivity.
