AT&T offers free WiFi to Southern California residents affected by wildfires

Nilay Patel

As the wildfires in Southern California rage on for a second straight week, residents struggling to connect with family members and friends are getting a little help from AT&T -- the company has decided to give away free WiFi at all of its wireless hotspots in the area. The hotspots in Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Orange and Ventura counties are all open without restriction and have been since Saturday -- a generous move by AT&T (regardless of the speculation regarding the company's motives), and hopefully one that will allow those affected to get in touch with their loved ones.
