The hotspots allow any iPhone user from any network to select the ‘Internode’ network name from the hotspot giving access advanced functions via the hotspot’s wireless network at no cost – rather than adding to their 3G data usage.
Although most of the hotspots are in South Australia, the company currently also operates more than 100 Internode Wireless hotspots in the NT, NSW, Queensland and Victoria and Internode MD Simon Hackett, himself a keen iPhone advocate, said Internode Wireless hotspots now welcomed iPhones. “After your one-off setup, an Internode hotspot now works at WiFi broadband speeds – for free,” he said, adding that, “This overcomes a real-world problem where advanced services will fail if your iPhone is configured to automatically connect to a wireless hotspot that requires a manual log on to the Internet.
