The firm has sealed a partnership with local wireless LAN hotspot operator WirelessG which allows Vodacom customers to gain internet access via Wi-Fi hotspots. The cellco is set to introduce an integrated billing system which will allow its 3G and HSDPA customers to use a single account for cellular and Wi-Fi services. A report from MyBroadband says Vodacom mobile data customers will also be able to roam internationally on around 110,000 hotspots across the globe.
