Has anyone else upgraded to Infinity and also been turned into a wireless hotspot? I only discovered that BT Openzone is also being broadcast from my Infinity Hub after the engineer left. People standing at the bus stop in front of my house can also join my own network (for a fee, so BT can earn extra cash from my connection) and then there's BTWIFI as an open network also being broadcast so any other BT customer can use my connection as well.
I didn't agree to any of this and after long and incredibly condescending phone calls, I've gotten nowhere. Has anyone had this happen to them?
I did that over 24 hours ago and its still broadcasting. How do I turn off the Openzone network being broadcast?
If BT want to earn extra revenue from an internet connection that I already pay for, then surely I should have been asked first and see a reduction in the amount I pay. Then, there's my internet potentially slowing down as a result of people joining it.
Also, my house isn't a Starbucks.
Are you sure? I've messed around with connecting to the Openzone network and it would charge me to use it (just like Starbucks) and BT are in complete denial that this network is being broadcast.
I've opted out of BTwifi but I don't know how to turn off the Openzone network.
openzone will also disable when BT WiFi disables
i am perfectly sure the BT WiFi service is Free to all BT Broadband users
once your hub had updated its software it would have changed to BT WiFi & BTWiFi with FON and both services are free to BT customers you only need your BT email and password to log in to the service
Yes John, BTWiFi is free to BT customers but non BT customers can pay for access.
Personally I don't see a problem as your own traffic is not affected.
