Skype Premium users get free Wi-Fi for the month of August

If you are enjoying Skype Premium, your happiness with the service is about to improve. This week the folks at Skype have introduced Free Wi-Fi for premium subscribers. The service will only be free throughout the month of August, but – free is free!

Instead of shelling out a ridiculous amount of money to jump on a Wi-Fi hotspot at an airport or train station, you can simply use Skype’s al la carte internet service. Normally you would connect to one of the one million worldwide hotspots and use your Skype credit to buy just the right amount of Wi-Fi, but this month it is all free if you are already paying for premium.

So go ahead, run to the nearest airport and enjoy your free Wi-Fi for the remainder of the month.

Have you ever used a Skype Wi-Fi hotspot – how was the service connection?

  • Does the picture imply this is unavailable to WP users? Or W8 tablet users?
  • Is this available in Canada? Is there a list of all Skype hotspots around the world?
  • It's funny how it isn't on WP8. Typical Microsoft move.
