I knew it was coming, and here it is:
T-Mobile USA launches WiFi access for cellphone users
It is only a matter of time before my Wing is able to take advantage of this plan. Since my Wing has WiFi, I am making SIP calls from it when I’m at home on my WiFi network, talking to my PBX, so why isn’t this far fetched? Tmobile is rolling out two phones they know will work with this service. The partnership with Linksys and D-link is to insure a rock solid connection, (IMHO they do make the best routers). This is really sweet.
Once the tech gets ironed out, I wouldn’t be surprised if they allow other users who can figure it out to take advantage of this plan. T-Mobile, congratulations on this announcement.
I’ll be curious to see how much news this gets in the US. If you could use an iPhone on Tmobile via WiFi, would you buy one?
I’ve only had one linksys router, that was about 5 years ago and it had all kinds of problems.
I’ve had a netgear since then and I love it. I like their hardware design better. I was in a t-mobile yesterday, my garbage razr died. I saw the linksys router, those antenna are hideous 🙂
It really is about what works for you in terms of hardware, there are many camps.
