Free Wi-Fi: A Xmas gift from Skyrove

Skyrove Wireless InternetHolidaymakers will be able to take advantage of free Wi-Fi access at over 650 Skyrove hotspots across South Africa this December as part of a deepening relationship between the company and Skype.

National Wi-Fi hotspot provider, Skyrove, formalised a relationship with communications software company Skype, in October this year which allows Skyrove hotspot users to buy internet access using their Skype account and Skype Credit.

The ten-day promotion of Skype Access will run from midnight on December 22nd, 2010 to midnight on January 1st, 2011.

“We are delighted that we are able to introduce our Wi-Fi access to the public during this period. Both consumers living in South Africa and those visiting will be able to make use of the offer to reach out to their families around the world. This is also a time when many people are travelling and rely on remote access to keep tabs on work,” explains Henk Kleynhans, MD of Skyrove.

The only requirement is that users have the latest version of Skype on their machines, which will automatically prompt users to connectbto the Skyrove network via Skype Access.

The ten-day free offer will allow users to experience the regular Skype Access feature which allows them to make use of their Skype Credit to access Wi-Fi at Skyrove hotspots around the country. This is particularly useful for people who make use of Skype on a regular basis ­ including South Africa’s growing number of international visitors.

The deal with Skyrove expands the footprint of Skype Access, which can be found in over 200,000 hotspots around the globe, making it simple and cost effective to make Skype voice and video calls, surf the web or any other online activities.

For Skyrove, the offer means fast, simple and affordable access to a greater number of users.
