O2 customers are to lose access to BT's UK network of public Wi-Fi hotspots, it has been announced.

The mobile broadband provider has informed customers that from July 1st they will need to use O2 Wi-Fi hotspots to get online while out and about.

It explained that there are currently over 8,000 O2 Wi-Fi hotspots for its customers to choose from, with more popping up all the time.

"You can get O2 Wi-Fi on your smartphone, tablet or laptop in thousands of locations nationwide such as McDonald's, Debenhams, Costa Coffee, All-Bar-One, House of Fraser, Café Rouge, TONI&GUY and at O2 Stores," the firm stated.

Customers can use the Wi-Fi hotspot finder on O2's website to locate their nearest connected location.

However, with O2 subscribers no longer able to use the BT Wi-Fi service, they will have significantly fewer public wireless broadband options.

BT currently has more than five million Wi-Fi hotspots in the UK, and eight million worldwide.
