The hot spots will be rolled out in McDonalds; Barnes & Noble bookstores; Tullys Coffee; several buildings owned by Seattles Equity Office, including the Bank of America Tower; and two country clubs.

Cometas network will be rolled out as part of Intels "One Unwired Day" Sept. 25, when Cometa, Intel and several media companies will allow the public free use of the hot spots in a bid to win public support for the technology. AT&T Wireless will be the service provider for the Seattle launch, the companies announced.
