Nintendo taking hotspots to UK

Nintendo plans to expand its free WiFi hotspots for Nintendo DS users to the UK. The service, called Nintendo WiFi Connection, will be extended to the UK by the end of November. An agreement between Nintendo and British WiFi providers BT Openzone and The Cloud will allow users to access more than 7,500 free hotspots in the UK starting November 25. According to reports, Nintendo is funding the deal, but the companies did not release the specific financials. The plan for UK hotspots comes just a few weeks after Nintendo announced the launching of free hotspots for Nintendo DS gamers in McDonald's restaurants across the US.
