Skype introduced Skype Access which is also known as Skype Wi-Fi. The app will allow users to access over a million hotspots in convention centers, hotels, airports, and other places. Using Skype WiFi will not require use of an expensive hourly or daily WiFi voucher. Instead, users will pay for WiFi access by the minute using Skype credits.
For those who need access but do not want to pay roaming charges, this app may come in handy. Just note that the app requires iOS 4.1 and above. In addition, you must have a Skype account. The going rate for Skype WiFi will be starting at $0.06/€0,05 and includes the Value Added Tax (VAT). Skype notes that the price will vary by the WiFi operator, but will include unlimited downloads and uploads.
For those who are interested and download the app from the App Store, Skype has another incentive. Skype is offering free WiFi from Saturday August 20th (00:00) to Sunday August 21st (23:59) BST for a max of 60 minutes. So check the app out at this link, and try it out, if just for the fact you get some free WiFi this weekend.
