iPass Inc. has become the first company to count over 10,000 active hotspots as part of its worldwide network.

As of the end of June, the company tallied more than 11,179 hotspots in 33 countries around the globe.

“This is a significant milestone in the Wi-Fi industry,” said John Yunker of Byte Level Research. “Connecting so many diverse Wi-Fi networks around the globe is no small feat. As more and more business travelers embrace Wi-Fi, they will seek out those networks with the widest coverage.”

While some companies also count hotspots that are under contract or ‘expected’ or count numerous access points within a single venue each as a distinct hotspot location, iPass says it historically only announced live hotspots accessible by its customers.
