Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

BT has announced it now has 80 Wi-Fi 'hotpots' in the UK - more than double the number it had back in October - enabling punters to access the Net on the move.

In an update of its programme to roll-out a Wi-Fi network it's also revealed that it has agreements in place for another 40 hotspots in the UK.

However, it's particularly pleased to be able to announce that it's cut a deal with BAA (British Airports Authority) to create public wireless LAN hotspots in Heathrow terminal one, Gatwick, Stansted and Aberdeen airports.

There are also plans to create 27 new sites at Welcome Break service stations and a further 36 hotspots at Hilton Hotels in England, Scotland and Wales.

Prices for this wireless broadband service starts at £20 a month for 300 minutes. One-off hour-long vouchers cost £6.
