Operating as its own telecommunications company, Ogden, Utah-based Flying J. Inc., decided to venture into WiFi without a third-party vendor. The company purchased T1 lines from a large carrier and designed and installed the networks on its own at 153 of its 160 travel plazas beginning in June 2003. And customers responded. The company is now branching out and installing its WiFi network in competitive locations by beaming it in from the outside. Flying J. entered the WiFi arena because of the strong customer response to its Internet machines inside its travel plazas.
