Over 3,000 more Wi-Fi hotspots will be accessible to O2 iPhone users from July 11 following a deal with BT Openzone

"The agreement with BT Openzone, along with O2's existing arrangements with The Cloud, will give all iPhone users 'unlimited' access to over 9,000 public Wi-Fi hotspots"

O2 iPhone customers will be have free access to 50 per cent more public Wi-Fi hotspots from 11 July, launch day for the iPhone 3G.

O2 has signed a deal with BT Openzone to give iPhone customers access to more than 3,000 BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspots across the UK as part of their standard iPhone data package.

The agreement with BT Openzone, along with O2's existing arrangements for access to The Cloud's Wi-Fi network, will give all iPhone users 'unlimited' access to over 9,000 public Wi-Fi hotspots.

The deal covers existing iPhone users as well as iPhone 3G buyers, with either device automatically switching to the fastest network available when in range of The Cloud or BT Openzone hotspots. Users can download content or browse the web from their iPhone as much as they want at no extra cost - subject to O2's excessive use policy.

The BT Openzone covers a variety of UK locations including 13 BT wireless city centres, coffee shops, railway stations, airport lounges, motorway service stations and marinas.
