Skype Offers Stranded Travelers Free Wi-Fi

Due to the recent volcanic ash cloud that has stranded travelers across the globe, Skype has decided to offer free Wi-Fi to ease the strain of  delays and canceled flights. Now Internet users around the world can make phone calls using Skype, surf the Internet, and check email for free.

The free Skype Access, the company’s Wi-Fi feature, will be available for free from today until 11:59 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (3:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time) on Friday, April 23, since that is when flights are expected to resume. To access the free Wi-Fi, find a participating hotspot and have a Wi-Fi capable device. Be sure to download the latest version of Skype and surf or talk for free.  100,000 hot spots exist worldwide  where users can access a Skype connection.  For a list of hot-spot networks, click here.
