UK budget hotel chain Premier Lodge is to install WLANs in its 140 properties across the British Isles.

Three sites will go live this month - Liverpool Albert Dock, Daventry and Southampton Airport - with the remaining hotels coming on stream by the end of August.

Access points will provide coverage throughout each location, the company said. For guests without suitable equipment, Premier plans to install terminals in its business suites. Each hotel will also lend guests USB-connected WLAN adaptors.

European WLAN provider Swisscom Eurospot will be supplying the kit and connectivity. Users will initially need to subscribe to one of the WISP's access plans or to buy one its pay-as-you-go vouchers. Voucher prices range from £3 for half-an-hour's access to £633 for a full year's worth of airtime. Subscriptions cost €40 a month, which includes 100 minutes' access time. Further time is billed at 60 cents a minute. And there's a one-off subscription fee of €20. ®
