Skype and the UK road warrior
Skype and Wi-Fi managed services provider Broadreach are to offer free Wi-Fi access to Skype users in Broadreach locations in the UK. These include some very high traffic (the company estimates 1bn annual footfall) and well-recognized locations, including Virgin Megastores, Eurostar, Travelodge, Moto, Little Chef, Virgin Trains, EAT, Choice Hotels & Quality Inn, and major railway stations including all London terminals.
On a separate note, I have resolved to follow Skype traffic more closely, and my observation today is that average minutes per day are at 41.3m in the past three day period. This is up from 40.3m observed this time last week.
