The telecoms firms have yet to confirm exactly when the free data access will begin, with the exception of BT which said it would be by the end of January. "Our inclusive support package means families that need it most can get help to keep learning, with unlimited data, free access to our five million WiFi hotspots and now free access to the two most popular educational resources," said Marc Allera, chief executive of BT's consumer division.
