LONDON -- BT has met its goal to have 500,000 wi-fi hotspots across the capital for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, by launching new wi-fi hotspots along 44km (27 miles) of the River Thames. BT Wi-fi is also currently live on the Olympic Park.

The hotspots give Londoners, visitors, commercial and private river users’ access to more than one hundred places to connect including the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, The London Eye, Waterloo Pier and London Bridge Pier.

BT made a public commitment in September 2011 to have half a million Greater London hotspots in place for the Games. Hotspots can also be found at high street brands, hotel chains, thousands of independent businesses and homes, plus outdoor hotspots across Westminster and Waltham Forest. More wi-fi access is good news for commuters who have been urged to work flexibly or remotely to ease congestion and keep London moving during the Games.
