iPass, a provider of enterprise mobility services, today announced that it has grown the iPass Mobile Network in France, assisted by a new partnership with Trustive, a European Wi-Fi access provider. The expansion of the iPass Mobile Network provides increased Internet hotspots throughout Paris and other French cities including over 1,000 hospitality venues alone.
