Sky clears to reveal Cloud hotspots

SKY is giving its broadband customers greater access to wi-fi around the UK.

The new service will provide Sky Broadband customers with a downloadable app that allows them access to wi-fi service The Cloud when they are on the move.
The service will be available at no extra cost to customers of Sky Broadband Unlimited, Sky Fibre Unlimited and Sky Connect.
The Cloud operates thousands of hotspots across the UK, in locations such as transport hubs, shopping centres and coffee shops. Partners include JD Wetherspoon, Wagamama, Pizza Express and Pret A Manger.
Sky estimates that around four million people pass through the network every day.
“WiFi Hotspots from The Cloud now gives millions of Sky customers quick and easy one-touch access whenever they want to be online,” said Lyssa McGowan, director of communication products at Sky.
“And by ensuring our hotspots are located where our customers need them most, they know they’ll never be far from a high speed connection.
“With a one-off registration process, they’ll automatically connect to the network, which takes all the usual hassle out of connection to wi-fi.”
The Sky Cloud WiFi app is available to download free to both iOS and Android devices. It allows customers to access The Cloud with a single touch, without having to repeatedly enter log-in information.
