The biggest problem with free WiFi is knowing it's authentic, especially as the scammers love using similar broadcast IDs to catch the unwary.

I do, however, welcome the initiative.

Traditionally offering free WiFi access to travellers in airports and during seasonal holidays around the world, Microsoft-owned VOIP giant Skype is looking to expand its wireless footprint in the UK and Ireland in a partnership with wireless broadband specialist Wicoms.

The initiative called Free Skype WiFi sees high street retailers, hotels and businesses partner with Wicoms directly, where they will receive a dedicated router and Skype hotspot service for them to roll out their own network and offer it to their customers.
