Re: Free BT WiFi, not a BT Broadband customer


[re: kitcat] [link to this post]
 
Thanks, but I already use the PAYG version smile. (Well, once at the beginning of October I signed up and bought 5 days). The point is that the email says "Free".

It did occur to me that it may be some offer because of that purchase. However the email address this arrived to is not the one that I used to sign up for the PAYG. It is the one I used in September to order Call Diversion.

I recently went on holiday to Malta. As you say, there is no free wireless hotspots at Gatwick (pay ones do exist).

Coming back, there is FREE wireless access at Malta airport.

I think that says a lot.

Is that the same as the one you use for your MyBT a/c, which I presume you have?

Just out of interest, ages ago when setting up, my scanner shows 'open' BT wireless hotspots, but I cannot connect to them - the first 4 show no encryption and are flagged as 'open':

Re: Free BT WiFi, not a BT Broadband customer - EDITED


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Not keen on the tracking; no use of any BT domain (possibly some marketing agent), but the email seems pukka; the main links redirect into http://www.btwifi.co.uk .

EDIT: Whois says the Received From domain, AdiDom.com, belongs to BT, sent via SMTP at MiSp.co.uk, UK Webhosting Ltd.

However I don't see that it really applies to you, or me. It's only useful for BT BB or BT Openzone Subscription or Voucher custs. Maybe it's cuz you once bought 1 of these vouchers but as you say the email addy does not tally.

Not a CAA issue. The airport owners can bar or permit whatever activities that want on their land. No defending them - just pointing out what the can legally do.

No. The sign-on for that is a completely different type of username. The one used for this was unique to the Call Diversion order.

smile. I didn't think of checking domains dammit! That's usually the first thing I do. The misp.co.uk/UK Webhosting Ltd is Tsohost, my mail host. "147.149.33.75" is also BT registered.

Later on I shall click a link and find out if the free wifi is true or a maillist mistake.

Thanks to all contributing. I'll report back.

If you want Free WiFi throughout the world just buy a Fon router.

In theory. I had a Fon router. I never got access to any of the BT Fon hotspots.
