Does it violate BT's T&Cs to allow my neighbour to use my broadband wifi?

Go to solution

I would like to let my pensioner neighbour use my wifi as they cannot afford their own. I do not require lectures about the wisdom of doing so. I only want to know if BT allows me to do so. I have spent some time in the T&Cs and can not find anything that prohibits it. Only a statement saying I am responsible for the activity of anyone I allow to use my network.

That is the only proviso,  BT don't care or know who has your wifi password.

If you mean you home wifi connection, then that is up to you. If you mean "BT-WiFi" then no, as that would mean given them your BT login details, which would allow them to access your account.

Bear in mind that BT do have a cheap broadband package for people on certain benefits, which may be an option for your neighbour.
