JiWire makes magazine hot list

JiWire has announced that it was named to the 2006 “Top 28 Web Sites” by Travel + Leisure. This special report recognizes the 28 Web sites most useful to the magazine’s readers while they’re on the road, as they prepare to travel or in their spare time, and recommends the sites based on user-friendliness, functionality and aesthetic qualities. JiWire’s Wi-Fi Hotspot Finder was included as a useful free service that enables people to quickly find Wi-Fi access by zip code or city from a listing of 113,000 hotspots—both free and paid—in 125 countries.

JiWire’s Hotspot Finder, located at www.jiwire.com, also features a link to download JiWire’s Wi-Fi security offering, which helps Wi-Fi users keep all their Internet activities safe and anonymous once they’re connected at a public hotspot.

“Hotels and resorts represent one of the fastest growing segments of Wi-Fi hotspots in the world,” said Kevin McKenzie, CEO of JiWire. “With more and more people wanting to get online when they’re traveling or enjoying leisure-time activities, it’s important that they’re able to find hotspot information quickly and easily. We’re honored to be recognized by a leading publication devoted to travel and recreation and hope our directory can help even more people get connected when they’re away from home.”
