BT’s Openzone and BT Fon services have been re-branded and grouped together under the new BT Wi-Fi umbrella.
With the name change rolling out gradually, BT hopes that a more unified approach for their Wi-Fi hotspots will make it easier for BT customers to spot and use the 4 million hotspots dotted around the nation.
“As tablets and smartphones have become increasingly popular, connecting to theinternet through wi-fi has become more relevant,” said BT Wi-Fi CEO Andy Baker.
“We are proud to offer our customers free access to one of the biggest wi-fi networks in the world and wanted to make it easier for our customers to find a hotspot and get online, it made sense for us to bring our estate under one unified brand.”
Like its predecessors, BT Wi-Fi is free when you sign up for any BT broadband package. Non BT customers can still use the service, for a fee.
