Borders, Verizon to Offer Free Wi-Fi

Starting in mid-October, Borders customers will be able to access the Internet free through Verizon's WiFi network in many of the chain's 500+ stores nationwide. This follows Barnes & Noble's July announcement that its longstanding AT&T network would now be offered free to customers with or without an AT&T account.

Barnes & Noble has been a hotspot since 2005, but only AT&T customers were able to access the network. Borders is working on installing its WiFi network, but not all stores will be hotspots when it rolls-out the services later this month.
