Boingo Wireless and Skype are introducing Skype Zones - Powered by Boingo, a service offering global Wi-Fi access to Skype customers at cheaper prices.

Skype Zones gives Skype's users access to VoIP (Voice Over IP) Internet telephony via Boingo's network of 18,000 Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide using a custom Skype version of the Boingo Software. Unlimited Wi-Fi access for Skype Internet telephony calls is available for US$7.95 per month, with an option of US$2.95 for a 2 hour connection.
Skype Zones is currently a beta service, and terms and availability may change.

Skype users simply log on to the Skype Zones service using the Skype Zones - Powered by Boingo software, which includes Boingo's Wi-Fi sniffer, connection management and roaming authentication capabilities. Once connected, users can make Skype calls and access key features such as presence, global user directory, contact lists and instant messages with the Skype software.

The Skype Zones client is available for Windows computers and can be downloaded from the Skype web site or the Boingo web site.
