Free O2 Wi-Fi Countrywide

Public Wi-Fi is a bit dodgy.  For the most part I tend to turn off the automatic searching on my iPhone as my 3G connection is generally faster that BT Openzone.

O2 is coming to the rescue as it will soon provide free Wi-fi in most public areas and venues around this fair isle essentially doubling the efforts already available from BT Openzone and The Cloud by 2013.

If you’re attached to another provider fear ye not – anyone will be able to access the free O2 Wi-fi. Rollout starts now, and O2 will be replacing 450 existing hotspots in offices and retail spaces 🙂

To get access to the hotspots you’ll need to sign-up if you’re not with O2, but if you’re already a customer and have a Wi-fi smartphone or tablet, you’ll be automatically signed up by the end of the year.

O2’s New Business Development Director Tim Sefton said: “O2 is integrating new layers of technology into the existing network to enable a seamless and sustained customer experience. We are technology-agnostic and driven entirely by our customers’ needs. We believe that services should be delivered in the best possible way, across multiple networks, supported by different technologies.”

This can only be a good thing as, judging by the speed on Openzone and The Cloud, the current crop is being hammered.
