BT eases iPad hotspot hop-ons

Login with your broadband details

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

BT Home Broadband customers who happen to own an iPad can now log onto BT Wi-Fi hotspots with their broadband credentials.

BT runs two Wi-Fi hotspot arrays: Openzone and Fon. Together they total more than 2m access points around the globe, the giant telco claimed.

Many BT broadband customers can already use these hotspots for free, but a new app, released this week, allows them to hop onto these wireless networks automatically.

Enter your broadband login details once, and you're done. If you ever want to access a BT hotspot in future, just select it in the iPad's Settings and run the BT app.

The app, BTFon Wi-Fi, is available now from iTunes. It's free to download.

There's a version for Android handsets too. ®
