Is this only for broadband customers? Says I'm not eligible.

Taken from the app...
Do I have to be a Sky Broadband customer to use The Cloud?

No, but if you're not a Sky Broadband Unlimited, Connect or Fibre customer you may be charged for the service and you won't be able to connect multiple devices.

Sky Broadband Unlimited, Connect and Fibre customers get free and unlimited internet access at Cloud WiFi Hotspots and can register up to six wireless enabled devices.

Thought that would be a bit too generous for Sky. Thanks :)

It's still relatively new, but it's great News.

- SkyGo & Sky Wi-Fi are brilliant to reel new customers in who are always on the Go and who use broadband via Dongle!

HEAT!

Pretty sure I connected to a Cloud hotspot last week on my WP7 phone and i'm not a Sky customer.

All The Cloud hotspots I've used have always been free anyway?

First of all, it's for all Sky broadband customers, regardless of which mobile platform. Secondly, WP7 fails simply because you thought you could not use this??? Get real!

The ones in McDonalds are due to move elsewhere soon anyway, but most of the free ones allow an hour a day, or something like that.

Sky broadband customers presumably won't be limited to that one hour limit.

I will investigate, thanks
CashMc#17
Yes it is unlimited

How many devices can I register?

You can register up to six wireless enabled devices to your Sky iD including smartphones, laptops and tablets so everyone in your home can get free and unlimited internet at all UK Cloud WiFi Hotspots.

I have had this for about 1 month now, it was a bit of a pain registering my phone whilst loitering outside one of the hotspots, it took a couple of tries but now all working ok. You have to sign in whith your "MySky" login.

In MY opinion I have not been impressed with WP7 for the year and a half that I have had it. I have connected to the cloud in various ways for many years. The OP made it seem like you must have an app installed on your phone in order to benefit from the service, which is why I asked the question. My chagrin at my phone OS need not concern you.
