BT unveils 3G Wi-Fi combo

And why Openreach is 'No cheaper'

SANS - Survey on application security programs

BT has launched a combined Wi-Fi, 3G and GPRS tariff for road warriors and other business folk on the move.

Known as "BT Datazone", punters are able to access the internet and check emails via more than 7,800 BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspots in the UK and Ireland, or "on the move" through a 3G or GPRS connection.

The service - which costs £49 for 4,000 minutes Wi-Fi access via BT Openzone and the chance to download up to 75 meg of information via 3G or GPRS - can also be used overseas.

"BT Datazone provides the key to truly mobile working ? enabling people to download files, check email or access their corporate network from virtually anywhere in the UK and abroad," said Chris Clark, who heads up BT's Converged Mobility Operations.

"This is an important step towards meeting BT?s convergence vision, of being able to access all your information regardless of where they are in the world, on your choice of device and over the most suitable network."

Separately, there's even more fun and games to be had with "Openreach" - the name of BT's new network division. While "OpenRetch", "OvenReady" "OpenPreach" and "OverReach" have all raised a few smirks, it's been brought to our attention that Openreach is also an anagram of "No Cheaper". ®
