How Skype Access works

When you're on the move and need to check your email or get access to the web, Skype Access is the easy and great value way to connect.

Simply select an available public access WiFi network (the stronger the signal the better). Skype will automatically pop-up a message if you can connect to this network using your Skype Credit balance. If you don't see a pop-up message in 20 seconds after connecting to accesspoint, try another network.

Once you're connected, you only pay per minute for what you use - no more paying for an hour's access if you're only online for 20 minutes.

You'll need our latest version of Skype to use Skype Access.
