Wireless provider Broadreach and net telephony firm Skype are rolling out their Ready To Talk service at 350 hotspots around the UK this week. Users will need a Skype account – downloadable for free – and they will then be able to make net calls via wi-fi without paying for net access.

Skype allows people to make free PC-based calls to other Skype users and users of the system can also make calls to landlines and mobiles for a small fee.

The system is gaining in popularity and now has 28 million users around the world.
