The Cloud offering free Wi-Fi hotspots to AT&T customers in the UK
If you're an AT&T cellular customer, you're due for some free WiFi on your next trip to the UK, courtesy of The Cloud. The company, which is owned by satellite and telephony provider BSkyB, has inked a deal with AT&T to offer its customers free access to 16,000 WiFi hotspots throughout the United Kingdom -- up to a point.
Under the deal, you'll be able to get up to 1 GB of data usage a month from hotspots operated by The Cloud. There's no word on whether or not AT&T customers will receive any special pricing on additional data if they go over that amount. Still, it's a nice bonus and should be enough for most travelers who'd normally have to pay for additional data bundles before heading abroad to avoid massive roaming charges.
AT&T offers a free WiFi International app on the App Store for finding hotspots abroad -- including those operated by The Cloud -- and signing into them without the need for password-based authentication.
