Windows Live Wifi rebrands to MSN

By Chris | In News | Posted February 16, 2007

Yet more juggling between MSN and Windows Live brands. The Windows Live Wifi Suite, including the Hotspot Locator, are soon moving over to MSN. Unlike the Windows Live Hotmail rebrand, the timing is much better, with the Wifi Suite not yet available as a public download.

Whilte the change from Windows Live to MSN WiFi Center and MSN WiFi Hotspots seems slightly bizarre, it fits in nicely with older MSN services such as MSN Internet Access. When you consider that the MSNIA team is actually developing the Wifi service, it highlights just how keen Microsoft was to brand everything Live at the beginning of 2006.

MSN Wifi Hotspots will soon be available at http://hotspot.msn.com/ featuring over 130,000 wifi hotspots (it currently loads Windows Live Hotspot Locator).
