With Windows 10 build 10166, Microsoft Wi-Fi finally goes live

Recommended Posts

With Windows 10 build 10166, Microsoft is getting ready for the official public release of the new operating system. And as part of that process, the company has finally started to test out Microsoft Wi-Fi, a feature that’s coming as part of Windows 10.

Insiders in the Seattle area, who are using this new build of the OS, will now be able to try out the Microsoft Wi-Fi app and purchase access to the internet when they’re on the go. As mentioned above, this is only available to those in Seattle right now, but Microsoft says "it'll soon open up to the rest of the U.S."

Microsoft Wi-Fi is the re-branded and updated version of Skype Wi-Fi, a service that allows users to purchase credits which they can use to connect to paid networks. Microsoft has partnered with numerous providers and carriers around the world to provide the service.

Those of you trying it out can easily access it by clicking on the network icon in the taskbar and selecting “Buy Wi-Fi from Windows Store”. The system will use your credentials that you’ve already used to purchase apps or music from the Store and you should be online in no time.

"What will it cost? For Windows 7 and 8.1 users: free for one year; then $129/£99/€135 to start" Is this true? because I tought it would be free for everyone with a windows OS.

Yes,it is more than true,the prices you've mentioned were confirmed by the company itself.

They've never said it will be free for any Windows user...These were only some users' rumors.

Only Insiders will get the free Windows 10 (as much as they've helped at making it and will do the same after its launch)
