Worldwide weekend of free WiFi with Skype Access
When you’re on the move and need to check your email or get access to the web, Skype Access is the easy and great value way to connect. It’s hassle-free, and you only pay per minute for what you use – no more paying for an hour’s access if you’re only online for 20 minutes.
From 0000 GMT on Saturday 20 March 2010 to 2359 GMT on Sunday 21 March 2010, Skype Access will be completely free to use from anywhere in the world. All you need is a connection to a Skype Access compatible hotspot and the latest version of Skype for Windows or Skype for Mac. You can download or update Skype for free if you don’t have it already.
And there’s more: if you’re unfortunate to be affected by the industrial action by British Airways cabin crew, you’ll be glad to know that we’re extending the offer in the UK to 2359 on Monday 22 March. If you get stuck in a UK airport with a compatible hotspot, you’ll be able to stay online for free to work, adjust your holiday booking or better still, make a free video call back home to your family with Skype.
Skype Access is provided by WiFi hotspot operators around the world. There’s a complete list of compatible WiFi networks on our support site.
