PlusNet's FREE Wi-Fi Hotspot Trial
By: MarkJ - 01 March, 2005 (9:06 AM)

PlusNet is giving customers the opportunity to try out public Wireless Broadband for free, via BTOpenzone's ‘hotspots’, until the end of March. BT covers over 1,500 restaurants, hotels and major rail stations etc.:

Public wireless broadband enables users to check email and surf the web via their own laptop while at lunch in the local, or working away from home. PlusNet customers can register for the free trial service as a simple addition to their existing subscription and benefit from unlimited free wireless minutes until the end of March.

PlusNet’s Marketing Director, Marco Potesta, explained “PlusNet have teamed up with BT Openzone to give our customers the chance to experience this innovative new service, which opens up a whole new way of using the Internet, for free. We’ve put together a straightforward package that delivers low cost broadband at home, wireless hardware kits to get you mobile in the house and garden, and now free minutes for broadband when you’re out-and-about. We’re taking the latest technologies and making access to the web as fast, flexible and fun as possible.

Working wirelessly away from the desk is beginning to capture the imagination of business users, who are now realising the benefit additional flexibility can provide. Public Wireless Broadband delivers the same speed and quality of access as conventional broadband.

Once you have registered for your minutes from PlusNet, you can tell when you're in a BT Openzone hotspot by the distinctive BT Openzone sign, or by starting your wireless enabled laptop and viewing the available networks.
