T-Mobile recently announced it would be partnering with Bright House Networks for a Wi-Fi roaming test run. Called the “Preferred Wi-Fi Network Trial,” it involves T-Mobile customers in Tampa and Orlando connecting to one of Bright House’s 34,000 Wi-Fi hotspots using the Passport standard, which is intended to offer seamless calling and messaging over Wi-Fi, while avoiding resending credentials. The companies are trialing the service as they evaluate the potential for full deployment.
