Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider Skype is marking Internet Week Europe by giving away free Wi-Fi access to UK consumers.

Up until Friday November 12th, the firm – which offers web-based telephone services – is allowing consumers to use its 200,000 wireless broadband hotspots for free.

Ordinarily, users are required to purchase credit and then use the service on pay-per-minute basis, but all this week charges are being waived.

All consumers require is the latest version of Skype for Mac OS or MS Windows, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

Skype commented: "From 00:01 GMT on November 8th to 23:59 GMT on November 12th 2010, Skype Access will be free to use.

"You can surf the web, send email and make free Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls at Skype Access-enabled Wi-Fi hotspots in cafés, hotels and airports across the UK."

Internet Week Europe is taking place between November 8th and November 12th, with a number of events being staged across the UK.
