Have you ever been stuck in an airport, and absolutely needed an Internet connection? Most airports in the US don’t offer free Wi-Fi, and the fees can sometimes be pretty outrageous. Now that the holiday season is upon us, many of us will find ourselves spending some time in one airport or another on our way to visit family and friends. If you’re one of those people, you’ll be happy to hear about Skype’s free airport Wi-Fi.
Over the next week (December 21st – December 27th), Skype will be offering a free hour of Internet access to third-party wireless hotspots in 50 airports across the US. This will be available for anyone with a PC, Mac or iOS device. It will not be available for Android or any other mobile platform other than iOS.
In order to start, install Skype on your computer or the Skype Wi-Fi app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Sign in using your Skype ID, and then check the wireless network connection. You should now be able to connect to a supported wireless hotspot, if you’re in one of the supported airports. To find out if your airport is included, check out this interactive map.
