Skype to offer free wi-fi access next week



03.11.2010

Next week is Internet Week Europe, the continental celebration of all things web related, and Skype has decided to help folks in the UK get online for free during this period.

This means that in theory, you should be able to hop onto most wi-fi hot-spots across the country and surf away with Skype footing the bill. Nice…

C-net UK points out that you’ll need the Skype Access app, which allows a user to access other company’s wi-fi spots, paying with Skype credit. Although you won’t have to pay at all next week.

Not every network will be supported, mind you, but it seems like the majority will, including BT Openzone hot-spots, The Cloud, and a number of other providers.

We’d imagine this is going to cost Skype a bit of dough, so fair play to them for making the European Internet week a more memorable (and money saving) experience for many.
