Deal opens up subscriber use of 30,000 new hotspot venues.

Dutch Telco KPN runs about 700 hotspots in the Netherlands. Now, those locations are all open to users of the WeRoam network -- and likewise, KPN subscribers can roam on the 30,000 hotspots from WeRoam. This gives KPN customers access to a total of 59,000 Wi-Fi venues worldwide. KPN's Dashboard software for connecting to hotspots will add the new WeRoam locations automatically; subscribers will get a visual cue on-screen when a WeRoam location is available.

KPN hotspot locations include the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. WeRoam partners include Wayport, AT&T Wi-Fi and BT OpenZone, as well as 50 others; the company has sites in 64 countries.
