Leading broadband provider BT has completed the development of a two million-strong Wi-Fi hotspot network.
Homes, local businesses, high street chains and major city centres can now take advantage of wireless broadband services, the internet service provider (ISP) stated.
Charing Cross Tube station recently became the latest addition to BT's wireless broadband network, with London commuters able to access Wi-Fi services in its ticket hall and on two platforms.
Gavin Patterson, Chief Executive Officer at BT Retail, said demand for wireless access has been growing at a record rate, and to meet this 780,000 hotspots have been added in the last six months.
"[We] will continue to meet the demand as more and more smart-phone, laptop, tablet, iPod and e-reader users choose Wi-Fi to stay connected when they are out and about," he stated.
"What's more, our BT Total Broadband customers have free and unlimited access to the largest Wi-Fi network in the UK included in their broadband package."
BT is currently investing £2.5 billion upgrading its national internet infrastructure, ahead of the launch of fibre-optic broadband.
