Monday 15 July 2013 | 15:22 CET | News
BT has won a deal to roll out BT Wi-fi for 140 Young's and Geronimo pubs and bars in London and the South East over the next five months. Customers will be able to get online with any wireless mobile device, tablet or PC. Research by BT and ICM found that 87 percent of consumers have accessed the internet whilst at an eating or drinking site, and 55 percent accessed wi-fi using a smartphone, tablet or laptop in a food and beverage site. When using wi-fi at one of these sites respondents were predominantly doing so to check social media (49%) or catch up on news and sport (42%).
