TELSTRA'S wireless hotspot alliance with McDonalds has come to fruition, with the first access points going live in the hamburger chain.

The alliance will eventually see around 500 installed at McDonalds locations, with the rollout due to be completed within 12 to 18 months. Hotspot access can be paid for via a Telstra post-paid mobile phone account or by credit card.

Telstra's next priorities in hotspot acquisition would be conference locations and the addition of more hotels, Telstra spokeswoman Virginia Murphy said.

Rival Optus has also targeted food outlets with its wireless service, forging alliances with Gloria Jean's and Hudson's coffee shops and the Deli France chain of sandwich shops.
This is significant news.
A seriously big Telco committing investment $ to this technology means they are convinced of WiFi's future potential and should be planning additional strategies for network expansion.
