O2 Falls Out of The Cloud

By Gary Cutlack on at

O2 has put an end to its Wi-Fi hotspot sharing arrangement with The Cloud, a comfortable little agreement which used to allow O2 subscribers to enjoy a bit of turbo-charged data access while out and about.

Up until February 1st, O2 SIM card holders were able to access the Wi-Fi services offered by BT Openzone, The Cloud and the company's own collection of public access hotspots, but as from last week access to the internet via The Cloud is no longer allowed.

O2 helpfully suggests you re-register with The Cloud on a separate basis if you're particularly attached to the sofas or brand of coffee in one of its Wi-Fi locations.

Or, if you're a Sky subscriber, you can soon use your Sky credentials for access to The Cloud another way. [O2 via Reg Hardware]
