iPass finally offers service to individuals, but only if you have Windows

When I read the news that iPass is finally going into the consumer market, I was thrilled. For years iPass has been serving the enterprise market, allowing employees of its customers to get wireless Internet access (3G and Wi-Fi) via their partners worldwide. Now, their terrific service is available to you and me. Unless, you’re like me and have a Mac.

The service is expensive: the global 3G/Wi-Fi combo is $84.95 per month. But for people who need to be connected and travel a lot, the price isn’t bad. Compare this to paying in a typical European hotel for Wi-Fi access at 30 EUR per day.

Now, if only iPass would support Macs, I’ll be one of the first to sign up. They also don’t support mobile phones other than those on Windows mobile.

UPDATE: iPass told me that they are coming up with a Mac version soon.

  1. Unfortunately, you’re almost as bad as they are. “Now, their terrific service is available to you and me. Unless, you’re like me and have a Mac.”

    I don’t have a Mac, and I still can’t run it (think Linux).

    Let’s see…if Mac only gets a mention, and they have 5% of the market…then where does that leave Linux? The Linux crowd is funny….use it because it is more secure, and because it does not have all of the exploits that are available on other machines running more popular software and OS’, and then bit** ….get over it!
