O2 Logo 2BT Openzone’s wi-fi network is closing to O2 customers from 1 July, as the four-year deal between the two companies draws to an end.

It was revealed to O2 customers today via email that the wi-fi hotspots around the UK will longer be available, although its 8000 hotspots would still be available in various shops and restaurant chains.

This means that customers of O2 will lose around one-third of available hotspots as BT removes access to 4,200 of its own.

In a statement released today, O2 said: “From 1 July 2013, we will no longer offer access to BT Openzone wi-fi hotspots to our customers.

“We’ll continue to extend the reach and scale of O2 wi-fi through exciting partnerships with venues including O2 shops, restaurants, retail outlets and outdoor and indoor locations across the UK”.
