Both Heineken and BT have come together, knowing that pubs and local watering holes are places where you meet up with your friends for a good time together, and sometimes, there is a need for a Wi-Fi connection because you can never quite tell just when you need to Google something during a conversation, especially when facts get all muddled up after you have had a wee bit too much to drink.
This tie-up between Heineken and BT will see around a hundred London pubs receiving access to BT Openzone, and there are plans to further extend the service to another 200 pubs across the country before the year is over. Needless to say, you must bear in mind that this Wi-Fi connection is not free at all – it will still cost you, unless you are one of the many BT broadband users in the UK, or have inked a deal with your mobile provider in order to gain access to the network.
