Pay for True Wi-Fi with Skype Credit?

Skype for wifi networks coming soon?

According to this page, you will be able to use your Skype credit to pay for wifi access with wifi networks around the world, including True Corporation Public Company Limited. Other majors include KSC, Boingo, Airborne Access, Starhub, Singtel and about 150 others.  This is great news as the current state of pay for wifi is more of a game of account collection than anything else.

You will need SkypeOut credit, and you pay per minute.

From 00.00 GMT on Saturday 20 March to 23.59 GMT on Sunday 21 March, Skype Access will be completely free to use from anywhere in the world.

How Skype Access works

Simply select an available public access WiFi network (the stronger the signal the better). Skype will automatically pop-up a message if you can connect to this network using your Skype Credit balance. If you don’t see a pop-up message, try another network.

Once you’re connected, you only pay per minute for what you use – no more paying for an hour’s access if you’re only online for 20 minutes.

  1. So, correct me if I’m wrong, but this is an outrageously expensive service in Thailand at 6-7 baht per minute (around 400 baht per hour!). You’re better off just getting the monthly unlimited service from True. I pay 250 baht/month for as much True wi-fi as I can use in a month. My True login also works at KSC Hotspots.

  2. But at least it’s pay by the minute. May not be a full time solution, but to be there when you need it. On the right track.
