Just how connected is your life when you take stock of all the devices in your pockets and bag? I am quite sure that most of us would have taken the built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for granted where a feature on any decent device worth its salt is concerned these days. Well, there are moments in life when Murphy just loves to prove his law on you, and you are stuck in some place where there is no 3G or 4G LTE signal available, and the Wi-Fi rates there are just way too expensive to justify hooking up to the internet to scratch that social network itch. Good to know then, that this will not be the case if you are a Skype Premium subscriber, as you are then eligible for Skype WiFi for free throughout the entire month of August.
Yes sir, no longer do you need to purchase Wi-Fi according to your needs and drain your Skype credits along the way, Skype Premium subscribers are able to take advantage of this offer for the entire month, and to know that Skype WiFi is available at more than 1 million hotspots worldwide is another comforting thing to hear. Just remember that Skype WiFi is available on Windows desktop, Windows 8, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android only at the moment, and Internet access will remain subject to the terms and conditions of the hotspot service provider. In case you are wondering, this is not the first time Skype is offering free WiFi, as they have done so at airports and conferences in the past.
