Wi-Fi users in Scotland can now take advantage of nearly 320,000 Wi-Fi hotspots – almost three times the number of less than two years ago, BT claimed today.

The company said its rapidly expanding BT network, the largest in the UK, now has more than three million UK hotspots in homes, independent businesses and city centres.

They include nearly 26,000 hotspots in Glasgow, 20,000 in Edinburgh, 16,700 in Aberdeen and 26,700 across the Highlands.

BT has claimed that access is free to over 5 million of its customers, as well as smartphone users.

Meanwhile, the company has also claimed that its number of Wi-Fi hotspots in Yorkshire and the Humber has also nearly trebled in the last two year, growing to over 205,000 locations.
