SPOTLIGHT: BT buys marina WiFi operator

A high speed WiFi network covering 39 coastal and inland marinas in the U.K. and Jersey has been acquired by BT. Square Mile Marina's service will be switched to the BT Openzone service in time for the start of the sailing season in March. Broadband connectivity will be available to some 3,000 permanent berth holders and visiting yachtsmen using 10,000 marina berths. As part of the agreement, Openzone has been installed at five new Tingdene marinas in the past month. The yachting website MyMarina.co.uk will continue to be available from the BT Openzone marina landing page. Article
