For major providers like AT&T, it's entirely possible that Easy WiFi may just not have all of their hotspots mapped... but since AT&T likely uses the same authentication on all of their hotspots, your card will probably still connect there. It should also be noted that in the US, the Eye-Fi hotspot feature includes not only Easy WiFi, but ALL AT&T hotspots. So if you have the hotspot option, any hotspot on AT&T's map
should work with your card, even if it's not on Easy WiFi's.
Yep it still logs you in fine just the map isn't updated.
the map is generated by the 'hive' (whatever the term is for end users). Basically when a smartphone using their software logs into a network it sends them the GPS coordinates. The problem is they took their servers that process the data offline sometime apparently around December and put them back up like a month ago. They still are way behind. Seems they have BILLIONS OF TRANSACTIONS backlogged. (So they have PILES OF users- good for them)
Now I'm not a computer science major or anything. But seems to me if your new server takes over a month to process about 3-4 months of data then it seems undersized. So even once they catch up they're likely to get overwhelmed with increasing users quickly.
I love the service but they come off as amatuerish that they are offline for months. Then seems like 2 guys in a garage running a 500 dollar PC from staples as their server on a DSL line when they can't catch up for months. Don't the 'big guns' just through more hardware at such issues? Sometimes even just paying amazon and having them crank it up?
At the same time they just disabled their network sharing feature where you could send friends your access point info. Still haven't turned that back on.
And their website is bugridden. (Everyone is from afganistan because regardless of what country and timezone you select it reverts to the first one on the list- lol)
So they just dont present themselves well. The actual service rocks but they LOOK like they are overwhelmed.
So with all that I'm not sure how quickly they respond to requests to manually add new walled garden hotspots.
