Skype's Rolling Out Free Wi-Fi Across the UK

By Sam Gibbs on at

Skype, or Microsoft, depending on how you look at it, is looking to seriously expand its free Wi-Fi service and is gearing up to roll it out, nationwide, across the UK. Normally the domain of airports, Skype's pushing free routers into the hands of coffee shops and businesses everywhere, so you can grab even more free Wi-Fi while you’re out and about.

All you'll need is a Skype ID and the Skype Wi-Fi app, or just an email address to register, then you can surf to your hearts content -- great if you're still hankering after 4G speeds, but neither have the money nor the service for a dollop of EE's 4G. [Wicoms via TNW]
