BT Promotes Hotspots, to Launch Trial

By Nancy Gohring

BT Openzone is hoping to draw in some new customers with a 2 deal for 250 minutes of access: The minutes last three months and after that the same amount of minutes can be purchased for 10. BT has historically made several other low price offers, seemingly aimed at attracting customers. So far, however, BT hasn’t done much in the way of dropping its regular prices, despite lots of grousing from the community about its high access rates.

In other BT news, the company is planning to launch a trial of a combined GSM/Wi-Fi service in April. The service will enable voice calls over both GSM and Wi-Fi networks. Trialers will use an HP iPaq. BT has been talking about this type of offering for a few months and in mid-February said it would add Wi-Fi to the concept in about 18 months. Initially, BT had planned to use Bluetooth. That plan is still underway but the company is also developing the Wi-Fi solution.
