iPass Expands Broadband Wireless Roaming Service in Latin American with Wi-Fi Presence

3/11/09 - iPass Inc. (NASDAQ: IPAS) announced a partnership with Mexico's leading fixed-line telecommunications provider, Telmex. Under the agreement, iPass has integrated more than 1,300 Telmex Wi-Fi hotspots into the iPass Global Broadband Roaming Network. These locations are immediately available for use by iPass customers.

Telmex, Mexico's largest internet service provider, has partnered with iPass to extend the benefits of its network to global business travellers. The new hotspots operate in Mexico and six South American countries, and include 50 Mexican airports, including Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City, and Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport in Guadalajara, top hotel and conference centers around the country, 250 Starbucks cafés, and hundreds of name-brand restaurants including McDonalds, Vips, Sanborns and El Porton.

"We are committed to providing Mexico's businesses and people with the best telecommunications services available, and our Wi-Fi network has been widely adopted by our customers," said Mr. Ricardo Kuri, internet value added services director of Telmex. "We are pleased to expand availability of that network to the more than one million businesspeople that use iPass to connect."

As with all providers that join the iPass network, the TelMex Wi-Fi network has passed rigorous Enterprise-Ready certification testing, which helps to ensure security, reliability, performance and compatibility with enterprise systems.

"As one of the United States' largest trading partners, Mexico is a popular business travel destination for many of iPass customers," said Piero DePaoli, senior director of global product marketing at iPass. "Adding the country's leading Wi-Fi hotspot network to the iPass Mobile Office service means our customers can get work done in Mexico as seamlessly and securely as if they were at their headquarters."

Using iPass software and services, companies can provide their global workforce with the industry's broadest variety of remote and mobile access choices, complete with web-based management of connectivity and devices, and delivered through the easy-to-use iPassConnect™ universal client software. The iPass global virtual network covers more than 175 countries and includes 3G mobile data, over 100,000 business-grade Wi-Fi hotspots in 78 countries, fixed broadband and dial-up today, with the ability to add 4G technologies such as WiMAX and LTE in the future.
