Can someone advise me please. I have a BT anytime connection on my PC at home. Can I legally use the same connection using a Laptop when I am away from home. My job entails me travelling around the sothwest and would like to be able to connect to the net anywhere (in the UK) and at anytime.
I am afraid that you will have to pay your host's telephone bill.
I have "Bt openworld anytime" on my laptop only, as I thought I would be able to connect from wherever I was, at no expense to my host. I have only tried once and gave up as I could not establish a connection.
There is a previous thread here which tells ypou how to connect using a local call number, but on your host's telephone bill. This is not a sign of great competance that BT are unable to identify a client and make their connection at the contracted price.
So long as you are using a BT line and you are not attempting to accces the internet on both your laptop and a pc at the same time from different locations (ie 2 simultaneous connections) you are doing nothing wrong.
Think about it, if you move house would you reapply to BT for a second BT anytime account?
I use pc at home and one at work and by definition can't be in 2 places at on time. I have had the BT anytime dial-up account for 2 years and never had a problem
