BT and FON Offer One Hour of FREE Public WiFi Hotspot Access

Thursday, December 5th, 2013 (1:12 pm) - Score 17,232

BT are offering one hour’s worth of free access to their national network of public wireless Internet (wifi) hotspots, which is part of a special pre-Christmas promotion.

Apparently all you need to do is sign-up for the special promotion code and use it before 15th of December. The code can then be redeemed when accessing any of BT’s 5 million hotspots across the United Kingdom or 7 million abroad. Existing BT Broadband customers already receive free access and thus don’t need to apply.

Get the FREE BT WiFi code.

    To clarify, you need to sign-up for the special promotion code AND USE the free hour’s wifi before the 15th of December.

    So, you pay over the odds for your broadband connection and line rental, and then once you’ve paid for your crappy DSL connection, BT then allow other people to use that connection and charge them an arm and a leg for it and your connection suffers as a result and you get nothing in return.

      Do BT customers still pay over the odds these days?
      Does every suffer a crappy DSL connection, all 6 million customers?
      Does FON make your connection suffer?

      @FibreFred BT Limit the fon connection to 512kbit/s but still if you live in a busy area it can affect. Only issue I had with BT is that they don’t tell you that they are going to supply the wifi through your router. their is no way to turn it off on the home hub you have call them and only next day it will get turned off.

      Fon was an great idea. but it should have been a choice.

    “…BT then allow other people to use that connection and charge them an arm and a leg for it and your connection suffers as a result…”

    Yep i scrapped my Homehub to stop people leeching upto 5Mb of my bandwidth at a time. Tried to get BT to disable BT-Wifi on the hub and even followed online directions, it never got turned off. They have a complete nerve to charge you to use their so called wifi service when its nothing but a basically a big bot-net leeching bandwidth.

    The next thing to go will be the modem which is totally un-configurable. May even move like many next year to another ISP that doesn’t opt you in to things you do not want, has decent DNS, decent supplied hardware, and more important decent support when things go wrong.
