Microsoft has signed adeal with Devicescape that will give Windows Phone 8 users free access to over 12 million WiFi hotspots within the US, and users will be able to easily locate these WiFi hotspots through Bing Maps on their Windows Phone 8 smartphone.
“Mobile data caps, tiers and throttling are limiting the smartphone experience”, said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. “By leveraging the Devicescape network of public hotspots, Microsoft can now pass along tremendous value to its Windows Phone 8 users enabling them to locate a nearby quality WiFi network. Windows Phone 8 users will now have an alternative way to manage their monthly data plan while maintaining the quality of service they are accustomed to from their mobile provider.”
This is good news for Windows Phone 8 users, and will help them to reduce monthly data charges, and keep below the data caps that various mobile carriers set on their plans.
