Love to use Skype, but find that you are constantly adding funds to your account? Trying to figure out why you are using skype instead of Vonage? Well let me tell you how to use Skype for $7.95/month….wait…NOT EVEN….IT’S FREE!!!!
Next you have to configure it with the Boingo firmware. That’s it. When you setup your Boingo account you are now an authorized reseller of Boingo wireless with a master account that entitles you to use ANY other Boingo hotspot (including your own).
Maybe a little backstory first. Boingo is a wireless hot spot provider, sort of like T-Mobile hotspots in Starbucks. The cost is $21.95 a month for unlimted access or $7.95 a month for Skype only access on ANY of these Boingo hotspots.
You can buy the Linksys WRV54G router and setup a Boingo hotspot in your business, home, office etc. You can make money from having a Boingo hotspot as well. You get $1.00 if they use your hotspot on a monthly plan, and $4.00 if they are using a day pass. You earn $20.0 for each new customer that signs up for monthly service, and pays for 60 days.
Well included with owning a Boingo hotspot, as previously mentioned, you get a free account. They certainly aren’t going to make you pay for your own hotspot. Since this membership includes unlimited Skyping, you can now call ANYONE you want ANYTIME for FREE thru Skype.
That’s it…buy the router, set it up with Boingo, start Skyping unlimited. It’s that easy, and the only costs is the router, and heck…you might even make a few bucks from those pesky friends who come over and use your wifi all the time.

UPDATE from comments: Daniel writes, “During the router setup you are given the opportunity to add the MAC Address of your own wireless gear to the Access Point’s list of “allowed” MAC Addresses. At no point do you get the option ability to create a regular account. According to the Boingo support guy I spoke with this morning (Bill) at one point about six months ago they may have been giving away three months of network-wide access to new HotSpot admins, but not any more.”
