In partnership with BT Openzone, we deploy Wi-Fi Kiosk hotspots in street payphones across the UK.
What is a Wi-Fi Kiosk? The BT Openzone Wi-Fi Kiosk service provides customers using wireless-enabled devices, such as laptops or PDAs, with fast, wireless internet access at more than 1,000 payphone sites across the UK. This uses the standard 802.11b wireless technology and provides coverage within approximately 150 metres radius of the payphone.
Where are the hotspots? In addition to the street payphone sites, BT Openzone have hotspots in over 8,000 public locations across the UK and Ireland, including: travel sites such as Welcome Break service stations, major main-line railway stations, major airports (Heathrow / Gatwick / Stansted / Aberdeen), McDonalds drive-in's, hotels such as Hilton Hotels and many other public locations. A full listing can be found at: www.btopenzone.com/find
Are there any health & safety issues? Although this hotspot technology uses very low power radio signals, we have completed testing to ensure that it fully complies with both Government guidelines and BT's rigorous H&S practices.
BT Payphones can offer Wi-Fi capability not only from our street payphones but also as part of our public sector and commercial solutions.
