O2 users will be able to access 3,000 BT OpenZone Wi-Fi hotpots from today if they upgrade their O2 Windows-based mobile broadband Connection Manager software.
The new software will automatically copy existing Wi-Fi profiles from a customer's laptop into Connection Manager during the initial installation. This will connect users to their home or business broadband wireless networks, without the need to manually enter security codes.
The upgrade will also add a data counter to let users monitor and control their data consumption more easily. Users will receive an automatic alert when they have used up 75%, 90% and 100% of their data allowance.
Existing O2 customers can use the new features after a simple upgrade to their existing software. New customers will benefit from extended Wi-Fi coverage and the improved Connection Manager from the end of July.
