Digital TV & WAP

Your bank may offer you banking via digital television or Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), which enables you to access the internet via your mobile phone. Although interactive digital TV and WAP services are available as banking methods, they tend to be limited and are generally less popular than other options. Many banks and building societies no longer offer these services at all due to their limited appeal. As Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) and third generation (3G) technologies improve however, it is expected that mobile phone banking using wireless technologies will become just as popular as internet banking, offering the same services wherever there is mobile phone network coverage, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week whilst on-the-go.
