BT has announced plans to launch Wi-Fi Openzones at major UK holiday parks this summer, including 3 Pontin’s sites, 77 Camping and Caravanning Club sites, and Coastfields Leisure sites.
Visitors to these sites can use any Wi-Fi enabled device to access the Openzone connection for surfing the net, making cheap VoIP calls, or online gaming.
Most users will have to pay per minute to connect, although access is free to BT Broadband customers with inclusive BT FON Wi-FI minutes, BT Openzone subscribers, and O2 iPhone and mobile broadband users with inclusive Wi-Fi minutes.
“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,” said Chris Bruce, BT Openzone general manager.
These new Openzone sites will add to BT’s 400,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the UK, including BAA airports, Cafe Nero and Starbucks coffee shops, and Hilton, Thistle and Ramada Jarvis hotels.
