Surf on the move - wireless and free of charge
- 2002-04-11 22:00 UTC
This week, Telia Mobile in cooperation with Hewlett Packard is launching its "Fly & Try" project at Bromma Airport, Stockholm, Sweden. All travellers at Bromma Airport will be given the opportunity to lend a PDA or laptop, a W-LAN card and a 24-hour subscription to HomeRun - all free of charge.
"Fly & Try" is a test project for everyone flying in to or out of Bromma. Equipment will be lent out in the same way as cars: travellers will have to leave their credit card numbers as security. These services can also be installed on travellers' own computers if they do not want to lend equipment.
"The aim of 'Fly & Try' is to demonstrate, primarily to business travellers, how a mobile solution can facilitate and streamline their working day. With Telia HomeRun, your waiting time at the airport will be turned into efficient working time, because it allows you to link up to your office and gain access to data regardless of where you are," says Mats Salomonsson, Acting Head of Telia Mobile Sweden.
Everyone taking part in "Fly & Try" has the chance of winning a portable HP Jornada 928 (a PDA with a built-in GPRS element), plus a W-LAN card and Telia HomeRun subscription. This project will be running until 31 May and will then be assessed. Anyone wanting to try out Telia HomeRun is welcome to visit the Telia stand in the departure hall at Bromma Airport.
