Internet Security Threat Report 2014

BAA, the owner of the UK's key airports, today agreed to let T-Mobile install Wi-Fi hotspots in international departure lounges at London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports, and at Glasgow. At Heathrow, the deal covers Terminals 3 and 4, and includes American Airlines' and United Airlines' business class lounges.

Punters accessing the Internet this way can expect to pay T-Mobile's usual tariff: £5 for a hour's online time, rising to £16.50 for a 24-hour period - though we'd hope that no one is delayed that long at Heathrow Terminal 4.

T-Mobile mobile phone customers can gain access codes by SMS, billed at a rate of £1.50 for each 15 minutes spent online - which, as we've mentioned before - actually works out more expensive than paying by credit card. ®
