Verizon’s heart growing larger by the day, soon offering free WiFi access to home broadband subscribers.

Verizon hasn’t exactly been the nicest most “consumer friendly” company in years past with overly restrictive policies, particularly in their wireless market.  However, lately they have been getting a slightly better image if not from their own powers, from the outright abysmal image of their rivals.  (Such as the ongoing Time Warner fiasco which makes Verizon look like an angel).  Well, it seems as if Verizon is ready to let their hearts grow just a tad larger.  The newly consumer loving company announced that they are in the final stages of closing a deal with Boingo in order to bring free WiFi service to their DSL and FiOS subscribers.  Yes that is right Verizon home broadband users, you will soon be able to browse the vast and far reaching web wherever Boingo has WiFi services.  Places such as McDonalds, Starbucks, and even the LaGuardia and Newark Airport hotspots.  On a sad side note, if Verizon wants to increase their home broadband subscriber base and entice more mobile users on their WiFi networks, maybe they should begin the practice of actually incorporating WiFi in their mobile devices.  Eh?
