The company has long been known for its hot spots in hotels, airports, Starbucks coffee shops and other indoor locations. The new hot zones will be the first of its kind for AT&T seeing to it that they cover public and outdoor spaces.

The new zones are expected to provide fast data services for AT&T subscribers and will also divert traffic from the company’s cellular network. For AT&T clients, the service will cater for a number of devices such as the iPhone and iPad, which automatically connects to Wi-Fi when it is detected.

AT&T also confirmed that it plans further expansion in the new year, which will include sport stadiums.

AT&T subscribers making use of smartphones and tablet devices can use the zones at no costs. Usage of these zones will not count towards monthly data limits.
