Consumers using the Apple iPhone will now have free access to wireless internet via an additional 3,000 hotspots, O2 has announced.
As part of their monthly service plan, customers can now access wireless around the country by connecting to the BT Openzone network.
When combined with its own the Cloud service, iPhone users can now access more than 9,000 hotspots throughout the UK.
"The availability of BT Openzone on the iPhone 3G is in direct response to strong customer demand for a quality Wi-Fi service on their device," said Dave Hughes, director of BT Wireless Broadband.

The news follows the launch of the 3G iPhone last week, which is available exclusively on the O2 network. Users of the older handsets will also be able to upgrade to take advantage of the improved functionality.
