If your price plan includes BT Wi-fi, you'll be able to use thousands of BT Openzone hotspots to browse the internet, read and send emails, stream music and watch videos while you're out and about.

It won’t use your mobile data allowance but there’s a 3GB monthly limit, part of the Fair Use Policy in your terms and conditions.
