FREESPOT is a service that allows the hosting of free and open wireless access to the Internet. It offers Internet access through a high-speed fixed wireless LAN router combined with a broadband line that is far faster than mobile communications protocols. The FREESPOT network of high-speed hotspots in many locations enables people to check email, gather information through the Internet, and even access their company server through a VPN regardless of which access point is used. In addition, the access system benefits both hotspot owners and users, and has great potential for growth in the future as infrastructure for a well-networked society.
System Requirements for Users
A computer with Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 g/b) capability, computer with a wireless LAN card, or Wi-Fi-enabled device, including games consoles. Anyone can freely get wireless access to the Internet.

A setup service is included so that owners can open a hotspot easily, without trouble, and at low cost.
