Win an iPad Air

BT Wi-fi and glh. are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a 32GB iPad Air worth over £500.

BT has now launched a free, fast and unlimited wifi service in partnership with glh. to all guests at their hotels across the UK, including Thistle Hotels.

This "one-click" service allows customers to log onto the Internet instantly, without the hassle of signing up and giving all their details.

iPad Air

Demand for wifi in hotels is rising, with Thistle guests using over one billion minutes of wifi in 2013. A report by BDRC Continental found that guests consider free wifi as important as a good night's sleep.

Combined with the rapid explosion in smartphone use, predicted to reach 2.4 billion by 2015, the role of reliable wifi has never been more crucial to hotel guests.

As an owner/operator, glh. has taken the lead in upgrading its wifi service and has become BT's biggest user of free wifi.
