UK-based Wi-Fi hotspots network The Cloud is well in with Apple, having recently announced a deal to give iPhone owners free access to its hotspots when the handset goes on sale in November. Now The Cloud has announced a separate offer for owners of Apple’s iPod Touch.
It’s called Cloud Unlimited Music, and launches on Monday. Users will pay £3.99 a month, which will give unlimited access for internet surfing and iTunes Wi-Fi Store downloads. You’ll have to register your iPod Touch online, which means no usernames / passwords when you’re at one of the company’s hotspots.
It’s launching in the UK first, and then rolling out across Europe. I’d sign up for it, but I did wonder why iPhone users are getting the same thing for free. However, The Cloud tells me this is because iPhone users get their free access as part of their monthly O2 contracts, and of course that doesn’t apply to the iPod Touch.
