BT hits 1m Wi-Fi hotspots

Tuesday, February 9th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Broadband bundle provider BT now has one million Wi-Fi hotspots in use across the UK and Ireland.

Bundle provider BT has announced that it has introduced one million Wi-Fi hotspots across the UK and Ireland.

The company, which offers consumers packages featuring broadband, home phone and digital TV services, has revealed that the hotspots are available in homes, high street chains and city centres.

BT's broadband customers have inclusive Wi-Fi minutes in their contracts, while casual users also have the chance to purchase access from as little as two pence per minute.

Gavin Patterson, chief executive officer at BT Retail, said: "Whether at home, at work or when out and about, wireless access is central to keeping people and communities better connected.

"We've grown from 500,000 to one million hotspots within six months, and will continue to add more to meet demand from smart-phone, laptop, iPod and now e-reader users."

BT was recently named an official partner of England's campaign to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
