Bern, 22 May 2007 — WeRoam, a leading wholesale aggregator of Public WLAN Roaming, in partnership with Coordinate Technologies Beijing Limited, a Wi-Fi aggregator in China, opens the booming country to roaming travellers.
Through this agreement WeRoam is adding nearly 2000 business-grade hotspots in China to its open platform. Coordinate is providing these locations in partnership with leading Chinese network operators China Netcom, China Mobile and China Telecom. Broadband wireless Internet is now also accessible for all WeRoam customers at venues such as main airports including Beijing International Airport and leading hotel chains. Particularly with regard to the upcoming 2008 Olympic Games these destinations will be of high interest. Thousands of visitors will generate additional traffic using the wire free connection for professional use but also by surfing the World Wide Web for leisure.

Toni Stadelmann, Vice Chairman of Comfone, said: “Coordinate was the partner of choice for WeRoam to provide WLAN access in China. We are highly satisfied with their professional business approach and smooth project roll out. Working together so closely made it easy to have our footprint live in good time for the largest sporting event in the world.”

Jason Liang, CEO of CoordinaTech, said: “Coordinate’s mission is to build world-wide data roaming strategy for Chinese enterprise and business users. As a result, it’s vital for us to develop strong Roaming Partners worldwide.
