People visiting Macdonald Hotels & Resorts venues across the UK will be able to access high-speed broadband thanks to the chain's new deal with BT Openzone.

Wi-Fi access will be available in all of the hotels' public areas and bedrooms by the end of 2009, allowing BT broadband users, Openzone customers and O2 iPhone users to email, surf the web and make VoIP calls.

Customers from iPass, Boingo and a range of other Openzone partners will also be able to use the services.

Chris Bruce, General Manager at BT Openzone, said: "Many people expect to have access to Wi-Fi at quality venues like Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, whether through laptop, phone or other device. We are delighted to welcome their guests to the network."

The hotels will also sell BT Openzone vouchers, allowing guests to subscribe to the service for the duration of their stay.

BT customers can currently get online at over 650,000 hotspots located across the UK and Ireland.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the broadband provider is to add an extra 11,000 global hotspots to its Wi-Fi network.
