BT FON x 2

Go to solution
I've recently opted in to BT WIFI. The hub (v3) has been updated and on the "Choose a network" settings on the IPAD it shows the hub wifi network and also shows two others.
BT WIFI and BTWIFI-WITH-FON. Both show a full strength signal and I don't think it is a neighbours wifi network as the nearest is about 100m away. I can log on to each wifi network.

Are these two seperate BTWIFI networks or just one with two different names.


Does this mean I have two seperate BT WIFI networks on my hub, giving 3 WIFI networks in total with the main hub one.

They are coming from your hub - both used to be called BTOpenzone and BTFon - they are basically the same when coming from the homehub - yes there are now technically 3 wifi connections from your hub.

There have always been two extra SSIDs but, on my hub at least, they don't always both show at the same time or they may have different signal strengths. I assume that separate connections are necessary for non-BT Broadband customers, who can obtain access either by subscription to BT Wi-Fi or by joining the Fon network. A BT BB customer can connect to either.
