AT&T knows Wi-Fi is hot, and free Wi-Fi even hotter, which is why we are proud to offer iPhone customers free access to the nation's largest Wi-Fi hotspot network with more than 17,000 hotspots, including Starbucks*.
I haven't tried this so I don't know if the order the basic part is the free version vs what Premier is. I guess the only way to find out is to go to a HotSpot and try this and report back.
Get started with LaptopConnect
Login to the AT&T Hot Spot web page with LaptopConnect.
Activate the wireless networking functionality on your laptop or Wi-Fi enabled device and look for the SSID "ATTWIFI."
Once connected to "ATTWIFI" you will be presented with options to order AT&T's Basic or Premier service.
