Kampgrounds of America (KOA) plans to offer high-speed wireless Internet access to
customers at 100 of its 500 campgrounds by the end of this year. KOA will offer the
high-speed wireless Internet access, known as Wi-Fi, through a partnership with HOTSPOTZZ,
a provider of wireless Internet “hot spots.”
Customers of KOA Konnect, KOA’s new high-speed
dial-up Internet service provider, will have free access to the HOTSPOTZZ network from KOA
campgrounds and from all HOTSPOTZZ locations nationwide.
“Our research shows that more than
a quarter of our campers travel with their computers, and many more than that want e-mail
access while on the road,” said Jim Rogers, KOA’s president and CEO.
