John Lewis connects customers to Britezone WiFi

Customers buying digital equipment from the John Lewis Department Store in Milton Keynes are amongst the first in the UK to have free broadband connection from any WiFi enabled phone, pc, or home entertainment equipment. Shoppers can now log on to the high speed Britezone WiFi service from the audio department inside the John Lewis store, or at the Place to Eat restaurant above Middleton Hall inside Milton Keynes shopping centre.

John Lewis Partnership Milton Keynes is a gold sponsor of the Milton Keynes Britezone. Deborah Strazza, Managing Director said: "We are delighted to be one of the first department stores in the UK to offer customers free high speed internet inside our store.
