Skype delivers Per Minute Billing for Wi Fi accessVoIP network giant Skype recently inked a deal with a series of Wi-Fi networks so that they can offer roaming for its pay-as-you-go Internet customers. In a nutshell, this means Skype users are able to hook up to the Internet via a Wi-Fi operator partner in more than 500,000 hotspots worldwide. Paying per minute is more economical than per day or per hour, since you pay only for what you use, and with rates starting from £.04 /€.05/$.06 per minute (equivalent to £2.40 /€3.00/$3.60 per hour), it does seem to make good business sense if you require data connectivity on a sporadic basis – of course, if you want to remain online all the time, it would be a whole lot more prudent to look elsewhere.
