Qwest offers free hotspots

Internet provider Qwest on Thursday announced it has started offering subscribers to its high-speed Internet service no-charge access to about 17,000 Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the US. What is being touted as the country's largest Wi-Fi network, the hotspots are powered by AT&T, and Qwest subscribers can check for all the locations and log-in info at a dedicated Qwest website.

With the move, Qwest is hoping to keep customers by offering them greater value and wishes to attract new ones in a weaker economy.

Competitor Verizon may soon follow in the footsteps of Qwest, with AT&T and CableVision already offering such service.
