Skype hands us free wi-fi in UK for a week

Celebrate Internet Week Europe with free wi-fi courtesy Skype

Skype is sponsoring free access to public wi-fi hotspots in the UK for the duration of the first Internet Week Europe.

Internet Week Europe will last between 8 November and 12 November. The aim of the Week is to celebrate internet organisations and internet culture, as well as the its effects on the lives of people. There will be over 80 events held across London to celebrate.

If you have Skype Access (an app), you can get on to the internet from public wi-fi hotspots in the UK. The app allows users to access wi-fi from other providers and pay for it with Skype credits. During Internet Week Europe, this will be free.

You can go online using BT Openzone, The Cloud and Spectrum Interactive.

David-Michel Davies, co-chairman of Internet Week Europe, told The Guardian, "Internet Week Europe is all about the impact that the web has on our daily lives, from business to entertainment. What better way to celebrate that impact than partnering with Skype to make the Internet more accessible than ever?"

With the free BT broadband on the London Underground, and now this, wi-fi is become more of an essential commodity than a luxury these days.

Will you be taking advantage of free wi-fi with Skype Access? Tell us what you think of the week and of the app on T3's Twitter and Facebook and tune in for all your tech news.
