BT reveals Total Broadband Anywhere offer with free Togo Smartphones

As reported yesterday, BT has now officially unveiled its all-inclusive Total Broadband Anywhere offer with free smartphones included, starting at only £23.99 per month, only £5 more than its BT Total Broadband Option.

BT customers will be able to choose between two ToGo keyboard-enabled smartphones which are built by HTC, the S620 and the S710, both of which are powered by Windows Mobile and offer features that you can expect to find on Smartphones.

Customers will have unlimited Wi-Fi access to nearly 85,000 BT FON UK and OpenZone hotspots across UK and Ireland as well as 190,000 other hotspots outside UK, all for zilch... apparently.

Although not 3G enabled, the package, which runs through Vodafone's own network, is still excellent value for money although it will have to be bolted on an existing BT Total Broadband.

Packages start from £5 over and above what you are paying for your BT broadband, going all the way to £35 extra; this will give you 700 free texts and 600 minutes of calls.

You also get a punny 10MB GPRS allowance; the S620 is free and the S710 comes in at an additional £30.
