The pricing is a little vague. Concourse/iPass are going
to somehow extract money from corporate accounts, but
if you've got a wireless laptop anyway - it's free.
Am I the only one that can't make that add up ?

If you go to the concourse/ipass web sites, you'll
not find a whole bundle of info about pricing - they
seem to be following the wayport et. al. model from
what I can tell. Time for an email to concourse...
I'll post what I find out (if anything.)

I can vouch for that. At Nanog22 during one of the breaks,
someone put up a slide with 40 or so passwords on it that they had
snarfed with dsniff.
