Truckers with laptops aren’t happy about losing hundreds of “hot spots” around the nation. A Joplin, MO, company that provided truckers with Wi-Fi Internet connectivity at 450 truck stops has ceased the service.
The Kansas City Star reported that Siricomm installed Wi-Fi hot spots in 44 states, relying on ViaSat Inc. for the actual wireless service.
ViaSat cut off the service in November 2007 after Siricomm reportedly ran up $1.85 million in unpaid bills.
According to a recent report in the Joplin Globe, Siricomm has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization.
