There was a time with prior firmware when I could log a PS3 into a BT hotspot.
Havent tried for a while, but when I try now with current firmware I type in the correct credentials but its keeps going back to the openzone login screen.
My vita does the same thing. Its not a specific hotspot, I hve the same issue in both London and Birmingham at a mates house.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem. My laptop works fine with the same hotspot credentials.

More likely BT changed the site coding.
You'll have to waitt for more Vita users to confirm they can still login.

I solved the issue.
My laptop lets me login using just my bt username.
I can login to the PS3 using <username>@btinternet.com as the username.
It used to work just using the username part on the PS3. Now it needs a fully formed email address it seems, but my laptop just needs the first bit as always

This afternoon I cant log in at all with the vita or the PS3. either username/password or email@example.com/password
Sony please comment on this issue. Laptop has no issue. This is a big deal actually.

We have lost 2 moderators from the English forum with no sign of the advert for there replacements.
So I would surgest hitting Yasters and The newer guys PM box (I still can't remember this ID..) as I don't expect them to be working weekends, Fridays have been half days for most at london tower before.
Strangly Liquid Runner has been around on weekends more than the rest so PM him as well as a back up. Er when did you lose your badge or did you never have one...
But I don't think SCE Can tell BT to do any thing about fixing/reversing their system.
As a BT customer BT Sould take notice If you go direct to their forums.
( LOL sorry, one can dream. They should does not mean they will. )
I know BT add a small charge to your monthly sub to cover the Wifi points cost and BTs view will be that your lap top works so you have to pay but you should still try to get a few pence of the bill.
You might like to warn other vita users in the vita section that this may effect them.
Have you tried other free wifi points like that coffee shop chain that sub rent BTs wifi system
To see if this change is speading.
I know a lot of Free Wifi in Bournemouth has been removed and replaced with pay to use wifi. I cant use it at the beach any more. I hate the Peir it is to far to walk...
