Linktel has partnered with Accuris Networks to enable Brazilians travelling to United States and Canada to seamlessly and securely connect to Wi-Fi hotspots without the need to key-in usernames or passwords. According to Accuris Networks, Linktel customers can instantly connect to roaming Wi-Fi service, enabled by Accuris Networks' AccuROAM™ offload and roaming platform. Linktel and Accuris Networks believe that the WiFi roaming service will benefit a large number of visitors from Brazil travelling in the US and Canada.
Accuris Networks already provides American visitors travelling to Brazil with seamless, secure mobile phone connectivity to Wi-Fi networks throughout the country.

This new cost-effective, easy-to-access Wi-Fi service from Linktel and Accuris Networks is timely given what has been called a "boom" in Brazilian travelers to the United States, according to the U.S. International Trade Commission. Accuris Networks is an innovator in interworking solutions for mobile carriers globally making it easy for carriers to connect users to Wi-Fi networks, enabling any Wi-Fi to work as a full extension of their 3G/4G networks for billing, policy and authentication.
Jonas Trunk, CEO of Linktel
