Verizon has begun providing its broadband customers with free access to thousands of WiFi connections across the United States.

New Verizon FiOS Internet customers who order an up-to-25/15 Mbps or faster connection, or new HSI customers who order an up-to-3 Mbps/768 Kbps connection, can connect to the new Verizon WiFi hot spots, at no additional charge as part of their broadband service.

The new WiFi service is also available free of charge for existing FiOS Internet customers with up-to-20 Mbps or faster packages and existing HSI customers who have at least a 3 Mbps package.

Free Verizon WiFi hot spot locations include hotels, airports, restaurants, coffee shops, retailers, convention centers and public locations across the United States.

"We’re making it more enticing for customers to want to use Verizon broadband services by giving them the mobility tools they need to stay connected more often and in more places," said Mike Ritter, chief marketing officer for Verizon Telecom.
