users to get free The Cloud Wi-Fi access across UK

Mobile phones, Web 2.0, Wi-Fi
Share users can now gain free access to over 7,000 Wi-Fi hotspots courtesy of The Cloud, thanks to a deal announced today.

When users connect to one of The Cloud’s wireless locations via their mobile device, they’ll be greeted with MySpace branding and multimedia content on the landing page. Presumably if they’ve not paid for access to the rest of the Internet, or have an iPhone, that’s as far as they’ll get.

The joint promotion continues until October, by which time The Cloud presumably hopes that teenagers will be hooked and signing up for wireless access in their droves.

Fortunately, all sorts of teenagers are catered for with the new deal, given that The Cloud hotspots are frequently found in both sports stadiums and McDonald’s fast food restaurants. Pubs, too.
