BT is offering its broadband customers a smartphone option so they can check their e-mail and surf the web while on the move.

The BT ToGo device - worth £150, said BT - can be combined with BT's Total Broadband Option 3 package.

For £23.99 a month - £5 more than the price of BT Total Broadband Option 3 on its own - the BT Total Broadband Anywhere option allows users to stay in touch using the smartphone in Wi-Fi hotspots and on the Vodafone network.

When in range of an authorised Wi-Fi hotspot, the ToGo connects to the internet at broadband speeds and provides cheaper calls through the BT Broadband Talk3 option.

When out of Wi-Fi range, ToGo uses relatively slow GPRS wireless technology to connect to the web. There is a 10MB monthly out-of-range download allowance users pay extra if they go over 10MB.

The package also includes 50 call minutes and 50 texts on any network at any time. Larger minute and text bundle options are also available.
