skype wifi hotspots list location needed

Novel Tourist

Hi all,

 

I am trying to use the skype wifi access feature but all the hotspots that I though could work are not supported by skype. And I browse for all I though could help in this forum and always ended up in the same welcome site. .../allfeatures/skype-acess

 

some else even ask this same question and summed up in a way I laugh so hard, that I will repeat it. Because no one replay that question. So, where is the list of all location of hotspots that support the feature to connect using my skype credit. Because a million worldwide are not really much of a help.

Cheers

 

Oscar.

Hello,

This might help:

TIME ZONE - US EASTERN. LOCATION - PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA.

I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

Thanks, but the article only lists the 8 newest access partners and does not provide a list of all the access partners.  Obvioiusly, Skype knows who these partners are, why not tell us customers so we can start giving you money to use the service?

Go here

Scroll down. There is a section "How much does it cost?". Enter country and you will get list of supported hotspots and prices

I still don't see an answer here. It's nice to know the names of the wifi providers, but what I'm looking for is a map view that shows me where the hotspots are that I can use with skype in my region or in a region to which I will be traveling.

 

Truth be told, I can't figure out how knowing the names of the providers helps at all. I'm not inclined to use a service, or even pursue installation, when I don't know if I'll ever be anywhere near a qualifying hotspot.

 

Thanks.

It's been 9 months now.  Are you still working on getting a map of locations for your skype wifi hotspots? at $0.14/minute ($8.40/hour) for Skype Wifi currently- it is more expensive than starbucks wifi but still nice to have more hotspots to know about.

It's been in development for a much shorter time.

When it's ready, I will create news topic.
