I don't know, but apparently you have to purchase access to use it.

yeah its a part of BT's uk wide wi-fi hot spots or something where you give a bit of your bandwidth to any other bt customer in the area, and then you receive of someone else's bandwidth some when you step into their wi-fi area.

ive signed up
no one will use mine round here, but when im out and about ill get free wifi
one thing i dont get is it says it will set up the access point for me in a few hours
im connected to my old router and my hub is just connected to that, so i dunno what they are gonna do, but surely they need my permisson to set it as an unsecure network? the faq is a bit crappy. i guess ill just wait and see
