The sole provider for Apple's smartphone announced it is expanding Wi-Fi access for its subscribers in San Francisco. AT&T cellular customers will be able to connect their smartphones to Wi-Fi networks instead of having to use clogged data lines.
The hope is that by spreading the data across Wi-Fi and cellular networks, that AT&T's service -- both voice and data -- will improve in a city where the company has notoriously struggled to enliven dead spots.
AT&T's first public hot spot will be in the Embarcadero area of the City with more to follow shortly after. AT&T subscribers phones should automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network when in the area.
