BT Openzone delivers wireless Wi-Fi broadband to UK holiday

BT Openzone has created a new partnership with Wicoms that will see Wi-Fi broadband wireless Hotspot access being made available at major UK holiday and leisure parks; including 77 Camping and Caravanning Club sites, three Pontin's sites and locations at Coastfields Leisure sites in Skegness.

The move is partly in response to the greater number of Brits opting to take their Holiday somewhere in the UK this year, not least because of economic and job concerns. Some 50,000 visitors are expected at the sites over the August bank holiday alone, thus having the ability to surf the Internet and make cheap VoIP calls is good for when the English weather invariable falters.

Chris Bruce, general manager, BT Openzone said:

"Having the option to get online and stay entertained will provide a useful 'plan B' if the weather does its worst, and being able to look up tourist information and hunt out local gems will make for a better trip."

The service is inclusive/at no extra cost for 4.8 million BT Broadband customers with inclusive BT FON Wi-Fi minutes, BT Openzone subscribers, plus O2 iPhone and Mobile Broadband users with inclusive Wi-Fi minutes in their contracts. Other users can buy a BT Openzone voucher online, with access from as little as ½p per minute.
