Offering WiFi service through agreements it has with major hot spot providers around the world, iPassConnect allows customers to access thousands of locations via one log in.

The service is available for both generations of the iPhone and Touch operating on the 2.1 version or higher of Apple's operating system. It is available at the Apple App store or via the iPass Web site. Plans for the service begin at $7 per month with a one-year contract.
