T-Mobile Opens Wi-Fi to Katrina Victims

Many residents of the hurricane stricken areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama remain without power and no reliable connection to the outside world. T-Mobile is attempting to alleviate some of that suffering by opening up its hotspots in those three states to the public through Friday. The company would reevaluate the situation at that time.

T-Mobile said that the offer only extends to its wireless Internet services. "This free offer for the states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama is for Wi-Fi service only, not T-Mobile voice services," the company said. The company offers service at Borders, FedEx/Kinko's and Starbucks among other locations.
