Flying J will honor truck drivers balance of services at Truckstop.net: Flying J's TON Services, which offers Wi-Fi and Internet access at the company's nationwide service stops, will credit truck drivers with the balance of their Truckstop.net account services against a Flying J account. Flying J has 285 Wi-Fi hotspots currently. If you're a driver and you've paid a year in advance and you need access, this is a great combination of marketing and generosity. Flying J will see the increased revenue from gas and other services which would more than make up for any temporary loss on the Wi-Fi side.
Flying J's press release follows the jump.
Ogden, UT – December 7, 2004 -- Flying J has announced that it will support those professional drivers that have been affected by the recent suspension of service by Truckstop.net LLC, by honoring any outstanding balance of service remaining on those accounts.

JJ Singh, Vice President over Financial and Communication Services for Flying J, made the announcement by saying, “We understand how important it is for drivers to stay connected while they are on the road. High-speed internet access has become a necessity for many drivers and owner-operators and we sympathize with those drivers that have been affected by this unfortunate situation”.
