As Volcanic ash from Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland disrupts air traffic, travellers can enjoy free Skype Access, at over 100,000 wifi hotspots worldwide from midday Wednesday this week until the end of Friday 23 April.
We’re removing the normal charges made for Skype Access until the end of the week so that you can surf the web, email and make free Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls at over 100,000 WiFi hotspots in cafés, hotels and airports worldwide – including the vast majority of international airports.
Skype Access has no contract or monthly fees, nor any membership sign up process and normally costs a flat fee of $0.19 per minute to access WiFi hotspots via Skype. Skype lets you connect easily through public access WiFi networks using your Skype Credit balance. You only pay per minute for what you use and need not pay for hourly net access as usual.
From 1200 GMT on Wednesday 21 April to 2359 GMT on Friday 23 April, Skype Access will be completely free to use. Even after the deal is over, you can download Skype and make free video and voice calls with anyone on Skype and low-cost calls to phones worldwide.
