SBC Communications Inc. said Tuesday it has put wireless Internet service in more than 600 Barnes & Noble Inc. bookstores and will be in 88 Avis airport car-rental locations by early next year.

Barnes & Noble will charge customers $3.95 for a 2-hour session, and Avis, a unit of Cendant Corp., will charge $7.95 for 24 hours.

SBC said customers of its high-speed Internet service would get wireless access at both businesses for no extra charge until April 15 and $1.99 a month extra for a 1-year sign-up after that.
