    It seems very handy when travelling but it’s too expensive, I looked at Spain and it was 19c per min.  You can easily find a coffee shop with free wifi rather than paying 19c per minute.

    Why would you need this if you have 3G Unrestrictor? It tricks 3G into thinking it’s on wifi already with no cost on my phone bill.

  • This lets you to connect to a WiFi hotspot, such as Boingo, say if you were traveling in the USA. You could then use your Skype credit to surf the web.

  • True, I guess it’s a matter of convenience, having access to all of those hotspots where you can use Skype credit instead of hunting for free wifi.

    I agree.  Why would you pay for WiFi when most hotels, restraunts, etc offer it for free as a customer incentive? I’ve been around the world 3 times and never found a place without WiFi.

    More & more airports are switching to free WiFi, including those that use (or once used) Boingo. So, considering all the free WiFi hotspots that you get with your cell carrier, plus other free spots (McDonalds, Starbucks, Tim Horton’s, hotel lobbies, retailer stores, etc., etc., etc.)… why start paying a company for something that is readily free?

  • Sometimes when traveling their is less free wifi than you think. Guess it appeals to those who need it.
