Deutsche Telekom has partnered with iPass to offer its enterprise customers unlimited access to Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide.

The tie-up means that Germany-based operator’s business customers can log in to some 20 million Wi-Fi access points across 50 countries owned by iPass.

Wi-Fi will be provisioned from the cloud via a software-as-a-service delivery model, allowing them to access iPass’s network via single login.

iPass claims to have the world’s largest Wi-Fi network.

Earlier this month, it partnered with Fon to add nine million more hotspots to its existing stable.

The US-based company aims to grow its global Wi-Fi hotspot network to 50 million by the end of the year.

Hans Panse, Vice President Business at Deutsche Telekom, said: “Wi-Fi has become a must-have for enterprises, especially for those that have a mobile workforce.

“People don’t want to register with different networks or enter logins and passwords every time they connect to a different Wi-Fi network. They want a simple, hassle-free experience, which is exactly what we can offer with iPass.”

Patricia Hume, CCO of iPass, added: “Wi-Fi has become the connectivity option of choice for the vast majority of mobile workers.

“iPass Unlimited removes the need to worry about time or data constraints, allowing customers to enjoy unlimited usage across multiple devices without the meter running."
