JiWire Launches ”Hotspot Helper” Wi-Fi Software

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 8, 2006–JiWire, the Wi-Fi company, today announced the release of Hotspot Helper, an integrated suite of essential software for Wi-Fi users. The suite includes:

– Wi-Fi Security, which ensures Wi-Fi users’ privacy at public hotspots

– Wi-Fi Mailer, which guarantees email delivery, even at the many Wi-Fi hotspots that block outgoing email

– Wi-Fi Hotspot Finder, an offline directory of more than 120,000 verified Wi-Fi hotspots in 128 countries

Each component of Hotspot Helper is an upgrade to its predecessor, JiWire SpotLock. JiWire also announced a strategic partnership with Tropos Networks, a leading provider of metro-scale Wi-Fi network solutions, to promote Hotspot Helper to users of its rapidly growing number of municipal wireless broadband networks. More information and free downloads of Hotspot Helper are available at www.jiwire.com/hotspot-helper.htm.

“Hotspot Helper integrates solutions to the most common challenges facing both novice and experienced Wi-Fi users: where to find a hotspot and how to use it safely, securely, and reliably,” said Kevin McKenzie, chief executive officer of JiWire. “Since JiWire’s inception, more than 20 million people have used our products and services. We think Hotspot Helper, which combines our worldwide hotspot directory with functionality that substantially enhances the Wi-Fi experience, will be even more popular.”

Hotspot Helper is available as a free download, and its security and email delivery features may be used up to 30 minutes per day. Unlimited use of all the product’s features may be purchased for $24.95 per year.

Tropos Networks selected JiWire for its MetroMesh Solution Partners program and endorsed Hotspot Helper as a best-in-breed complementary product to its metro-scale Wi-Fi offerings.

“We are proud to recommend this solution to our extensive base of MetroMesh customers,” said Ron Sege, president and chief executive officer of Tropos Networks. “Hotspot Helper provides subscribers with rock-solid security features, solves irksome email delivery problems that can challenge Wi-Fi users, and includes JiWire’s legendary public hotspot directory.”
