Microsoft is secretly working on a new service named ‘Microsoft Wi-Fi’ that will provide Wi-Fi connectivity to subscribers all over the world.
According to reports, a Twitter user WalkingCat first noticed the website microsoftwifi.com on which it was mentioned ‘hassle-free Wi-Fi access around the world’, so users can be productive ‘on the go’. The same Twitter user earlier revealed Microsoft Earn on Twitter.
Soon after the news was leaked on Twitter, Microsoft pulled down the website. However, a website venturebeat.com captured the screenshot of the website, which read as below:
Don’t waste time filling forms with personal information or managing different carriers to get connected. Sign in once and you are done: you will automatically be connected to a vast range of WiFi providers around the world.”
“We can confirm that we are working on a new service, called Microsoft WiFi, that will bring hassle-free Wi-Fi to millions,” Microsoft spokesperson was quoted saying by few media.
The network would reportedly include 10 million hotspots in 130 countries. It looks like a revamped Skype Wi-Fi that will enable people to access internet at 2 million Wi-Fi hotspots, payable for the minutes used.
According to venturebeat, there are different versions for business and individuals.
