What database are you using for the hotspots? I notice my local Panera Bread and Starbucks aren't pinpointed (in Midlothian, VA near Richmond).

I've noticed this too, but thought it was still a useful link.

I've asked the submitter for further info on his/her source and will update the file description at a later time.

The data is being gathered from different providers. The current set is primarily from Wayport. I am continuing to expand each day. Please let me know the area that you would like to see more information, and I will see what I can gather.

Thanks for the input. Will continue to improve the dataset and functionality.

Thanks, techno. If you make any significant updates you'd like me to add to the remarks, let me (or another moderator) know and we can edit the description.

I know where at least 2 hotspots are, one owned by a Panera bread and the other owned by Starbucks (T-Mo hotspot).
