[MWC] Skype has taken the opportunity at this year’s MWC in Barcelona to announce its latest development of their own Wi-Fi service known as Skype Access. Its partnership will be expanded to cover more than 500,000 locations worldwide, where previously it was at around 200,000 locations – less than half of the new amount. This service should come across as more popular among those who do not want to pay some exorbitant fees for per hour Wi-Fi access, and good thing that MWC is offering Skype Access for free. This is in confirmation with our previous story that Skype has finally announced a deal that they inked well with international partners such as BT Openzone, M3 Connect, Fon, Row 44, Skyrove, Spectrum Interactive, Tomizone and Vex. Skype also intends to deliver its VoIP service to more smartphones, paying close attention to folks on networks with weak 3G coverage.
