BT and Tesco within the UK have joined forces to offer customers the advantage of free BT Wi-fi throughout Tesco Extra and Tesco Superstores across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
To be able to connect to the new Tesco Free Wi-Fi service customers simply need to select ‘Tesco Wi-fi’ or ‘BT’ on their smartphones or tablets devices whilst in Tesco stores to connect to the internet.
BT will be providing the WI-Fi connectivity offering bandwidth speeds of up to 76Mb to provide customers with connectivity even whilst indoors and queuing to checkout with the Christmas shopping. Tomas Kadlec, Group Technology Director, Tesco, said:
“Customers now want the same kind of experience in-store as they enjoy online, with fast and convenient access to product information, pricing and offers at the touch of their fingertips.”-“We were the first supermarket in the UK to offer free wi-fi and the first to launch online shopping. We’re now bringing these innovations together to put our customers in control with better service and value than ever before.”
Luis Alvarez, CEO, BT Global Services said: “Connectivity is becoming an important part of the customer experience. From retailing to banking, customers expect the same connectivity in high-street stores, cafes and bank branches as they get in their homes or workplaces. The BT Wi-fi partnership with Tesco gives customers the connectivity they expect. It also creates a platform for Tesco to further bring the in-store and online shopping experience closer together for the benefit of its customers.”
