One notable addition in this edition is the ability to purchase paid Wi-Fi through the Windows Store via the Microsoft Wi-Fi app.  According to Gabe Aul at the Windows Blog:

You will know when you can purchase Wi-Fi when you see “Buy Wi-Fi from Windows Store” in your list of networks when clicking on the network icon on the lower right in the Taskbar. The Microsoft Wi-Fi app provides the choice to pay with a Credit or Debit Card, a Microsoft Gift Card, PayPal, or Wireless Carrier Billing, and it helps keep your information secure since it uses the Windows Store payment system. 

The new Wi-Fi purchase system is being tested first in Seattle, Washington, but will be expanded throughout the U.S. soon.
