Technology giant Microsoft is set to launch a global Wi-Fi service that could set up around 10 million hotspots in 130 countries.

The plans were temporarily set live on the company's website this week, with the details captured in a screenshot by VentureBeat before being taken down again.

It said: “Don’t waste time filling forms with personal information or managing different carriers to get connected. Sign in once and you are done.”

In a statement to Time, a Microsoft spokesperson said: “We are evaluating a new service, called Microsoft Wi-Fi, that will bring hassle-free Wi-Fi to millions."

However, the company is refusing to elaborate further on the plans, which has already been compared to Skype WiFi, a network of more than 2 million hotspots.

According to VentureBeat, the new service will be available to existing Office 365 enterprise customers, as well as subscribers to Microsoft’s Work and Play Bundle.
