How to connect to BT wifi

Hello,  I noticed that the consumer of Plusnet can connect to the BT wifi freely. Can you tell me how to make it work on my phone? Should I install some apps? Thank you.

I dont believe that PlusNet customers have access to BT Wifi

Re: How to connect to BT wifi

If you are a BT customer you don't really need any app, you simply login with your BT id. When you select an open BT wifi connection a login page with come up in your browser asking if you would like to purchase any credit or login. If you select login you get a couple of options. Login wifi or if you are a BT customer login broadband (with your BT id).

As said, I doubt plusnet customers have any access to BT wifi unless they buy some credit on the web page.

Sorry @hongpeng

Plusnet customers don't have access to free BT WIFI.

I assume you're talking about BT hotspots?

 

BT hotspots are dotted around large populated areas and rely on other users letting their router/connection be used adhoc for this purpose.

 

It's not free, indeed it's very expensive. On demand BT hotspots will cost you as much as £4.99 for one hours usage.

 

It's a bit like airport Wi-Fi, except with airports they'll give you 1 hour free before they ask for money.

Better to use your mobile data than use this.
