FREE WI-FI OFFERED BY SKYPE THIS WEEK
VoIP provider Skype is offering internet users the chance to access Wi-Fi for free across the UK for one week only.
The special promotion runs for five days from 8th-12th November to coincide with Internet Week Europe. The scheme will allow internet users to access Wi-Fi hotpots for no cost at all thanks to Skype.
This week marks the first ever Internet Week Europe which seeks to celebrate internet culture, web organisations, and the positive impact the internet has had on our lives.
To take advantage of this one-off offer from Skype you’ll first need to download the Skype Access application in order to access the Wi-Fi spots. By doing this you’ll be provided with Skype credits, which are free this week, to pay for the Wi-Fi. Those wishing to use Wi-Fi on Skype this week will need the latest version of Skype for Mac or Windows in order to do so.
Usually the service requires users to log-in and pay up to 13p a minute for use of Wi-Fi services. Skype has over 200,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the world so it’s highly likely you’ll be close to a Skype covered hotspot wherever you are.
The freebie promotion will go some way to raising Skype’s profile and in turn, hopefully attract more customers to its Wi-Fi service.
