    Unlimited wi-fi comes to BT

    Unlimited wi-fi comes to BT Broadband customers

    BT has announced that its broadband user base will be granted unlimited access to the company’s many wi-fi hot-spots up and down the country.

    There are approximately 1.5 million of these across the UK, and previously BT Total Broadband customers were limited in the amount of time they could spend using BT OpenZone and Fon wi-fi spots.

    OpenZone encompasses the hotspots located in public places such as airports, hotels and motorway services, whereas Fon is a community of wi-fi users who share access securely with each other.

    Now you can use these to roam and surf to your heart’s content (bearing in mind that the amount of content the Internet may bring to your heart does come in limited quantities).

    Announcing the move, BT drew a comparison with O2, which recently tolled the death bell on its unlimited 3G data packages thanks to the strain the increasing amount of mobile Internet devices in use is putting on operator’s networks.

    “We thought rationing ended in the 50s”, BT said. And we thought waiting two hours to be connected on a phone call ended in the 50s, too, until our last attempt to get through to BT customer services.

    John Petter, Consumer Managing Director, for BT Retail, added: “Our BT Fon and BT Openzone networks expanded by 800,000 hotspots during 2009 and we expect to have over 2.5 million hotspots by the end of 2011.”

    “This continuing level of expansion means that these networks are rapidly becoming the simplest way for people to access the internet when out and about.”
