O2 has taken another step to widely improve its iPhone 3G offering in the UK, multiplying the available WiFi hotspots users can employ to get online.
Hidden in the small print on the O2 page, O2 confirms iPhone users will enjoy free use of WiFi hotspots from its existing partner, The Cloud, and also observes iPhone users will be able to use hotspots provided by BT OpenZone.
This raises the number of WiFi hotspots available to UK users to 9,500, with the O2 note mentioning that all these hotspots will be made available for use from 11 July.
Update: Citing O2 sources, one website reports the network may plan the creation of a 'mesh network' across London utilising WiFi hotspots from both The Cloud and BT OpenZone, saying: "Coverage is supposed to rival the coverage of mobile phone towers".
You can never have too many fast connection options.
