***How to get free Wi-Fi in the UK between 8 and 12 November***

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Skype on your computer, laptop or mobile
2. Sign in to Skype and select an available public access Wi-Fi network. You'll get an automatic pop up message if the one you select is not compatible with Skype Access, so you can select another.
More information, including instructions on how to set it up, is available at http://www.skype.com/intl/en/features/allfeatures/skype-access/
