We live in a world where every device seems to depend on the internet, so HP is trying to make staying connected much easier.  The company announced today that it is expanding it’s collaboration with iPass Inc to bring iPass’ global Wi-Fi network to HP customers worldwide.

The expanded collaboration means that customers who purchase new 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 1-3 years at no additional cost. Connecting will be as simple as once click to activate and sign on. The connections offer unlimited data, and also will be secure, private and safe, as it will be encrypted with Last Mile VPN encryption.
