- Does anyone use BT openzone wifi as regular internet access.
i use it all the time on my iphone and ipad as traveling
its incredibly easy with ios and the openzone app.
RTFM – you have to do it a specific way.
i get it as part of my package with BT – my routers an openzone hot spot …. how ever anyone using it thats not sitting inside my house – well they would have to sit in their car in my garden …. the signal doesnt stretch beyond that thanks to nice thick walls.Posted 4 years agoneilsonwheelsMember
A mate of mine has moved to a shared house in a small village. The internet access is average at best but there are 4 people already sharing a connection in the house making surfing porn painfully slow. BT want to charge the earth to put a separate line in however there is a telephone box opposite his bedroom booming out a cracking openzone signal. Looking at BT web site he can get unlimited access for £15 a month.
Any use openzone regularly.? Is it worth a punt.?Posted 4 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
_ Very sad choice of language this.
Back to the OP – I have a BT hotspot in my house, its called my own router I find the connection sometimes is better through the BT app than direct! I do use it when out and about useful in the pub sometimes as we don’t have a decent data signal round our way.Posted 4 years ago
whys that then surroundedbyhills …. only because you chose to read it that way.
Because you’re trivialising the word. It’s got nothing to do with how you “choose” to read it, that word only has one meaning.
By using it in the way you have it suggests maybe you don’t think rape is very serious.Posted 4 years ago
ok what about folk who use murdering when talking about blacking out cars and bikes ? ive seen more than one JOURNALIST refer to a bike as being murdered out …
maybe murder isnt serious either then ?
its quite clear what i mean – i mean to abuse the connection. – oh wait – abuse is serious too …
i mean to overuse the connection for their own particular wants.
is that more politically correct for you
EDIT: oxford dictionary states 2 meanings the first of which is as you say but number 2 example is 2: the wanton destruction or spoiling of a place:
the rape of the countryside
So the house mates are spoiling the internet connection by overusing it.Posted 4 years ago

It can be yes. But ‘abuse’ has the meaning Use (something) to bad effect or for a bad purpose; misuse so clearly has multiple meanings / uses.
