O2 expands iPhone Wi-Fi coverage

O2 has announced a deal with BT Openzone to expand the unlimited Wi-Fi package offered to all iPhone customers. Beginning July 11th, iPhone users will have access to more than 3,000 BT Openzone premier Wi-Fi hotspots as part of their monthly O2 tariff, for no extra cost. The addition of BT Openzone’s more than 3,000 hotspots to O2’s existing arrangement with The Cloud brings the total number of available public Wi-Fi hotspots for iPhone customers to over 9,000.

“By working with partners like BT Openzone we can maximise the web experience for iPhone customers,” said Ronan Dunne, CEO of O2 in the UK. “Public Wi-Fi hotspots ideally complement our mobile network, providing high speed web browsing and unlimited access to services like the iTunes Wi-Fi store in a wide variety of convenient locations.”

“The availability of BT Openzone on the iPhone 3G is in direct response to strong customer demand for a quality Wi-Fi service on their device. BT aims to keep customers best connected, any time and any place. With the iPhone set to become even more popular, BT is providing high-speed internet access at premier locations in the UK,” said Dave Hughes, director, BT Wireless Broadband.
