BT WiFi X

Go to solution
What is BT WiFi X? I can connect to Fon with no trouble but not X. I am a BT broadband customer using iPhone and iPad. I have looked at BT FAQ’s but there is no mention of X.

Hi @Hayseed

BT Fon, Wifi X are all now BT Wifi. Wifi X used to be the way apple users could join the free wifi network.. now its Just BT Wifi.

@Dean007

the hubs broadcast both BTWIFI-FON and also BTWIFI-X   the latter is specific to apple devices

even the newest hubs broadcast both

@imjolly

learn something new everyday.  I have BT Wi-fi turned off so I didn’t notice. 

I would suspect that X or Fon offer the same speed and coverage?

If you want to login to BTWiFi-X I think you need to install the profile on your iDevices.

You’ll need the BT WiFi app on your devices. Launch it and top right corner of the screen are thee dots. Tap on those and then ‘settings’ > install connection profile and follow instructions.

I believe the BTWiFi X hotspots are supposed to be more secure.

Thank you Paul_31, good answer, can now log into X. Always thought it was for business use as required a different log in.

Re: BT WiFi X

I have the bt Wi-fi app ver 6.6.26 config ver 6.0 

i can connect to BT Fon but not to bt Wi-fi x and there dones that seem to be an option to load a config profile, as previously mentioned, in this version of the app.

any ideas gratefully received.  I’ve used the same login manually when selecting wifix but it says wrong password.

@Rogercuthbert Hi, I'm using the same version of the app - the option to install the Profile is under (with the BT WiFi app launched) More (bottom RH corner of the screen)>Settings>Install Connection Profile
