BT eases iPad hotspot hop-ons
Login with your broadband details
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. ®
