Flat-rate WiFi for the UK

Flat rate WiFi for the UK WiFi providers TheCloud have announced a new “UltraWiFi” package which, for £11.99 per month (subject to 12 month contract), will let you use any of their access points for as long as you wish. The new package, available from July 1st, means that users will no longer have to pay £5 per hour for wireless internet connectivity.

TheCloud have 7000 hot-spots in the UK with new city centre “hotzones” in Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham and Oxford, along with the London boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Camden and Islington. They’ve also got WiFi access at all BAA airports, regional airports, train stations, Coffee Republic outlets, Little Chef cafés, Swallow Hotels and – my favourite – over 4,000 pubs and regional hotels across the country. This new package means that more and more WiFi enabled Windows Mobile handsets can be used in conjuction with Skype or SJPhone (for SIP calls via people such as VOIPBuster or VOIPCheap) to make cheaper calls compared to their regular network provider.
