iPhone users and probably Android now, can get a BT WiFi app (new name for Openzone) that automatically logs you into any hotspot, e.g. Starbucks or motorway service areas etc.
BT Smart Talk?

I have the Android version of it and use it a lot at home for 08nn numbers that cost me a silly amount on my Samsung SIII. I've noticed it login at other places but not tried using it there as there is no way I will ever use up my contract minutes and haven't needed an 08nn since getting the App.

The reference to phones rather than laptops threw me smile.

So what do you recommend as an alternative?

I've just ordered an Asus RT-N66U as a modern router. Reviewed on thinkbroadband last year:
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/hardware/reviews/76-as...

It has the throughput for modern services, even faster than FTTC, and has dual band WiFi, external antennas, and apparently good range. Should be a good upgrade from my Draytek 2820 which was brilliant in 2009.
