and Telenet to test ad-based wireless internet

5 Feb 2008 has announced that it will offer their free Wi-Fi access solution in selected Telenet hotspots across Belgium. Effective immediately, anyone with a laptop or Wi-Fi enabled device will be able to get free access in 176 Telenet hotspot locations until 15 April. The free service will be supported by an advertiser and users will be asked to watch a short advertisement in order to obtain their free internet access session. Telenet subscription-based services will still be available to those who wish to avoid advertisements or other sponsorship messages.
