Sky has received the one millionth download of its Cloud Wi-Fi app, it has been reported.

Launched in April 2012, the application allows users to register up to six individual devices to use at The Cloud's wireless broadband hotspots.

The company currently offers free public Wi-Fi at chains including Wagamama, Burger King, Pizza Express, plus many pubs and high-street locations.

Consumers using the app will only ever have to log in once - from then on they will automatically be able to pick up a Wi-Fi signal when in range.

“Reaching a million downloads for the Sky Cloud Wi-Fi app is a real landmark moment for us and a sign of how mainstream Wi-Fi has become," said Lyssa McGowan, Director of Communications Products at Sky.

She noted that the broadband provider is adding hundreds of new hotspots to its network every month.

"Our focus is on ensuring our customers can easily surf the web, catch up on emails and watch their favourite shows or sports on Sky Go with no usage or time limits when they’re on the move," Ms McGowan stated.
