T-Mobile has expanded its initial foothold in the UK's major airports, extending the reach of its Wi-Fi hotspots to cover the whole of Heathrow, Gatwick and Glasgow airports, along with the international departure lounges at Stansted, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Southampton.

T-Mobile announced its first foray into the UK's airports in May 2004, rolling out access points in the international departure lounges at Heathrow Terminals 3 and 4, Gatwick and Glasgow.

Rival WISPs BT Openzone, Swisscom Eurospot, The Cloud and UK Explorer also provide Wi-Fi access at a number of the UK's major airport terminals and business lounges, but none as yet offers as full a coverage zone as T-Mobile.

The mobile phone network's UK hotspot tally now extends to most Starbucks stores, many Texaco gas stations, Borders bookstores and Sheraton hotels. The company claims to run over 600 hotspots.

T-Mobile offers a range of access passes, from one to 24 hours, seven days and one month, priced at &pound5-45. Subscriptions are available from £30 a month, or access time can be billed to a T-Mobile phone account at a rate of £1.50 for each 15 minutes spent online. ®
