AT&T launches Wi-Fi hotzone on University Ave in Palo Alto, CA

AT&T has launched an AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Zone in Silicon Valley to provide Wi-Fi coverage on Palo Alto’s University Avenue, the heart of the city’s retail, entertainment and restaurants near Stanford University. The new hotzone is very limited: only from the 300 block to the 500 block of University Avenue, which consistently sees high customer traffic and mobile data use. There is an Apple store in this area as well as Starbucks, Borders (now closing) and other cafes and restaurants.

AT&T customers with qualifying high speed Internet, smartphone or LaptopConnect plans get unlimited access to AT&T hotzones at no additional cost. The rest of you have to pay.
