T-Mobile Discontinues Public Wi-Fi Hotspot Service

There weren't many left, but those that were worked really well. I'm referring to the T-Mobile Hotspots that once dotted the USA inside hotels, Starbucks coffee shops and airline clubs. The speeds were awesome and other than some initial early day access issues, connectivity was a snap to get on the network.

In many cases, the T-Mobile Wi-Fi network was the start of wireless access for many of us who desired a place to work away from the office. Dubbed conference room "S" in some places, the Starbucks' locations became extensions of many offices across the country.

Well, in a few weeks, they're all gone as T-Mobile has announced the shutdown of the service.
