BT is to back the upcoming World Wi-Fi Day by offering providing free public Wi-Fi access for several days.
The event, which has been organised by the Wireless Broadband Alliance, is taking place for the first time on June 20th.
BT will honour the occasion by joining forces with FON and offering free public Wi-Fi access between June 22nd and July 22nd, ISPreview reports.
Alex Puregger, Chief Executive of FON, commented: "World Wi-Fi Day is an important initiative because we are all about connecting communities and giving access to people via Wi-Fi.
"We really believe in and support closing the digital divide. To celebrate, we are working together with our partners to open up access on as many networks as we can around the world."
FON technology has been incorporated into BT HomeHub routers for some time, which means Wi-Fi connectivity is available to other BT broadband subscribers who are nearby.
The organisation has a similar arrangement with telecoms providers in countries including Australia, Greece, Belgium and the Netherlands.
