Skype, GoRemote Offer Free Wireless VoIP Calling

Mobile access aggregator GoRemote and voice-over-IP (VoIP) vendor Skype Thursday said they will team to offer Skype calling to mobile workers via the GoRemote mobile network.

Specifically, GoRemote said it will bundle Skype's software with its GoRemote Mobile Office client software. That software is used to log on to the company's 30,000 wireless points of access located in 70 countries, the companies said in a joint statement.

In addition, GoRemote will offer the Skype service to its enterprise customers, the companies said. The deal is similar to one announced several months ago by Skype and hotspot aggregator Boingo.
