      Sky WiFi

      Just noticed a new section in My Account on the Sky website:

      "WiFi - coming in 2012
      Internet access at thousands of The Cloud hotspots at no extra cost"

      Has there been an announcement? I know there have been trials. Anyone know when this goes live?

      Re: Sky WiFi

      Sky bought 'The Cloud' about a year ago. It has long been believed & some reports have confirmed that they will be providing access to 'The Cloud' for existing Sky BB subscribers.

      Hopefully this access will be available for free, but obviously we will have to wait for full T&Cs.

      Well there had better not be any "hopefully" about it if they have announced " at no extra charge" in my package details .

      My hopeful guess would be to say that for Sky BB Unlimited customers it would be a free extra, like the Anytime+ service.

      As for Home Lite & Connect subscribers, I am not sure how this may be offered.

      In all cases, until Sky makes a formal announcement, we cannot be sure what will happen.

      I also doubt very much that Sky would add such a service to your account without your permission if it were to be chargeable.

      Re: Sky WiFi

      I've been using the Cloud as part of the trial, here's the email I received yesterday:

      We'd like to thank you for taking part in our Cloud WiFi trial over the last few months. We hope you've enjoyed going online while you're out and about during the trial. Your feedback is appreciated and the information you've provided is already being used to improve the service.

      The Cloud WiFi trial ends on December 19th. From this date the wireless device(s) you've been using during the trial will no longer connect to the internet in Cloud hotspots.
      The full service will be rolled out to all eligible Sky Broadband customers in 2012. We'll be announcing details about this service closer to the launch date.

      Got any questions? Just give us a call on 08448-244-610* between 8.00 a.m. and 11.00 p.m. seven days a week and we'd be glad to help.
