SBC Communications Inc. said it is offering Wi-Fi service for $1.99 per month (rather than the usual $19.95) to customers who bundle the service with its “SBC Yahoo! DSL” digital-subscriber-line service and sign a one-year commitment.

An introductory offer pitched the Wi-Fi service at no charge until April 15 for customers who sign up for SBC Yahoo! DSL.

The “FreedomLink” service delivers high-speed wireless connectivity at 3,900 locations, including airports, hotels and coffee shops, as well as select McDonald's Corp. restaurants and The UPS Store locations. Other roaming locations are not included in the offer.
