An agreement that gave BT Openzone customers access to the Cloud's 7,000 wifi hotspots comes to an end next week. The two companies were not able to agree terms going forward, and BT's customers - residential and business - will find that the number of places they can get online is substantially reduced.
BT operates 3,000 hotspots of its own but the collaboration with The Cloud gave its customers a far wider reach. The failure of commercial negotiations between the two companies may mean BT customers will struggle to find a place to get online.
The Cloud is apparently offering a BT customers 30 days worth of free Wifi if they take out a subscription with them.
