British Telecom offer combats mobile networks' 3G rationing

BT Total Broadband users can now get unlimited access to an impressive 1.5 million BT FON and BT Openzone WiFi hotspots across the UK.

Until today’s announcement, the amount of WiFi minutes for BT Total Broadband customers depended on the package they had. Now, BT offers unlimited WiFi access across all BT Total Broadband options.

John Petter, consumer managing director for BT retail said: "Now that operators like O2 are rationing 3G, BT Total Broadband customers can find fast WiFi connections all over the UK's towns and cities with unlimited Internet access from 1.5 million hotspots".

“Our BT FON and BT Openzone networks expanded by 800,000 hotspots during 2009 and we expect to have over 2.5m 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”.

A downloadable app will be available soon to make hotspots easier to find and move between, as BT strives to cover the country in WiFi connectivity.
