BT aims to have 500,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across London for the Olympics


As sole provider of public Wi-Fi in the Olympic Park this summer, BT claims it will be the largest high density Wi-Fi venue deployment ever, including 1,000 access points at nine Olympic venues, and 500,000 across London by the times that the Games begin in July. They already have 475,000 hotspots up and running. Access will be free for BT Broadband customers while millions of other smartphone users will apparently have use included in their contracts due to agreements with a number of UK and international network providers, and others the opportunity to by pre-paid Wi-Fi vouchers.
