Collaboration With iPass Gives Seamless Wi-Fi Access to HP Customers Around the World

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 23, 2016) - HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced it is extending its collaboration with iPass Inc. to bring iPass' global Wi-Fi network to HP customers on select HP notebook and tablet PCs worldwide.

Staying connected with ease is important to HP customers. HP is making it simple and affordable for customers to connect to the internet and stay connected whether they are on the road for work or on the go around town by extending its collaboration with iPass beyond Asia Pacific and Japan to the rest of the world.

Customers who purchase new select HP notebooks, hybrid PCs, phablets and tablets with the iPass option will be able to access millions of hotspots on the iPass global Wi-Fi network for one, two, or three years at no additional cost starting in 2016.* The user experience is simple and easy with one-click activation and single sign on, and more importantly, Last Mile VPN encryption helps make it private and secure.

"We've heard from our customers that as they become increasingly mobile, they need affordable, seamless connectivity no matter where they are located across the globe," said Michael Park, vice president and general manager, Mobility, HP Inc. "We are excited to continue our collaboration with iPass to bring its global Wi-Fi network to our customers, so they can keep doing amazing things and stay connected in more places."

"It is paramount for people to have secure and easy access to Wi-Fi to stay connected to what matters most to them," said Gary Griffiths, CEO, iPass. "We are bringing the iPass global Wi-Fi network to HP customers around the world to enable rich experiences on HP's notebooks and tablets."
