Square Mile's Home & Boat DSL/Wi-Fi

Posted: 24th Sep, 2004 By: MarkJ
Global Wi-Fi provider Square Mile International (SMI) has teamed up with BTOpenzone and Pipex to introduce a combined wireless and land based broadband service for boat users:

Subscription to Square Mile hotspots in marinas will cost "yachties" £25 a month. If they want broadband in the home plus access while on board ther boats, it'll cost £45 a month. The full whack - boat, home and 6,000 BT Openzone hotspots - costs £75 a month.

Said Dominic Killinger, md of Square Mile International: "This puts the user in control, choosing from Internet access on their boat, at home or thousands of UK hotspots, and we can provide one subscription to meet their needs. There will be only one subscription and one account to access the internet for all three. We believe this is a first in the marketplace and that it will make significant savings of time and money for all sailors wanting access to the internet."


It's unclear whether you can also have 'just' the boat service, although SMI has already introduced the service to 32 UK marines, with a further 17 planned. More @ The Register.
