btIn the UK there has been moves to create wireless towns and cities, but the progress has been slow due to there being only one company that is providing the service, British Telecommunications (BT) have been putting the equipment into place that would create town and city wide wireless networks to create what is know as BT Open Zones, the total cities totally wireless is now up to twelve; Sheffield, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Bristol, Glasgow, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool, Cardiff And Westminster.

According to BT they are ahead of schedule and are still planning to provide the service into cities and large towns right across the UK.

The plan is to work with local authorities, business’s and residents in order that they can get the most out of the systems put in place, the customers are obliged to use BT as an internet service provider, but in the process they do push their own product, the BT retail service. Which is a plan that where the customer can choose from a menu of products which include Mobile Phone, Broadband, entertainment and land line phone services.
