British Telecom has decided to sort of return to mobile business today, with their new BT Total Broadband Anywhere initiative.
This is an all-inclusive package that offers Internet-capable smartphone with prepaid data and call minutes, and BT’s Total Broadband service for the home in a single bundle.
Broadband anywhere offering will be provided via two HTC smartphones – HTC S620 and HTC S710, that will use available BT FON Community and other BT owned hotspots to connect to the internet, for high speed data and BT VoIP services.
For GSM calls and data services where Wi-Fi network is not available, there will be a bundled plans for fixed minutes on “any operator network anytime”.
Unfortunately, there will be no broadband outside of Wi-Fi coverage zone, since only GPRS service is offered in all of the bundled plans, which include:
|Broadband Anywhere 50||Broadband Anywhere 150||Broadband Anywhere 250||Broadband Anywhere 600|
|GPRS data downloads||10MB||10MB||10MB||10MB|
