Skype just announced free Skype Wi-Fi to all you folks celebrating New Years in The Big Apple! Free stuff is always good, especially when you could make free calls to your loved ones during the New Year Countdown in NYC for example! How cool would it be to do a Skype video countdown in Times Square with your loved ones half way around the globe in Korea for example!

Skype will be offering the Free Wi-Fi service from 12pm December 31, 2011 to 12pm January 1, 2012. Skype Wi-Fi will not only allow you to make calls but it will allow you surf the web while you’re at it! Free Internet, Free calls! Thanks Skype!

To access the Free Wi-Fi, simply log onto ‘Skype Wi-Fi‘ on your Wireless settings and make sure you have the latest version of Skype app ready (Windows, Mac, iOS, etc). The wireless hotspots are located in these locations:

Times Square, West Village, East Village, South Village, Greenwich Village, NoHo, SoHo, Lowe East Side, Clinton, Chelsea, Union Square, Midtown, Midtown South, Murray Hill, Stuyvesant Park and Turtle Bay

Now go and spread the word, fellow New Yorkers! Also make sure your friends in other parts of the world have a Skype app handy since they would need it to receive your Skype Video calls!

Happy New Years and Thank you all from Digital Cupcake!
