Trustive, Low-cost, International WiFi Access


Skype customers can now enjoy seamless access to 2,800 Trustive hotspots in France

Trustive, a leading worldwide mobile internet access provider and the No1 WiFi access provider in Europe, is very pleased to announce a partnership with Skype. This partnership will give Skype customers access to 2,800 premium hotspots located across France through Skype WiFi.

Trustive primarily offers travellers comprehensive WiFi coverage by combining the hotspot locations of more than 80+ leading WiFi operators into one unified, global network of 300,000+ premium WiFi hotspots in 130 countries.  Trustive also works with operators wanting to create or extend an existing international portfolio by providing their customers with seamless, international WiFi access to Trustive's premium network. 

Skype WiFi provides travellers, whether they are on a business trip or enjoying their holidays abroad, a cost-effective and easy way to get wireless Internet access. With Skype WiFi, they can use their Skype Credit and pay only for the minutes they use. They can do whatever they want online with no limit to upload or download volume and without having to pay data roaming fees for connecting to a mobile network while abroad. To access Trustive hotspots, prices start from $0.14 / €0.10 / £0.08 (inclusive of VAT) per minute and users will only be charged for the minutes they are connected to the Internet.

Christian VanGhelder, Trustive’s managing director, firmly believes in the inherently symbiotic nature of this new partnership: “Over recent years, Trustive’s annual reports have shown the rapid growth of VoIP and video communication offerings that are used by travellers looking to avoid the otherwise expensive roaming costs associated with traditional voice services. Trustive customers did in fact vote Skype as one of the top 3 winning software providers in our annual report 2010-2011. We are therefore confident that Skype customers will quickly discover the joys of Trustive’s comprehensive WiFi coverage in France.”

Shadi Mahassel, Product Manager for Skype WiFi comments: “Adding Trustive hotspots in France to the extensive network of over 1 million WiFi hotspots worldwide is another important step to give travellers handy and cost effective wireless access, whether they want to browse the Internet, update their travel blog, check email, use Skype, update Twitter, upload photos or download music or ebooks.” 

To enjoy wireless access, users just need to download Skype WiFi on their laptop or iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 4.1 or above with multitasking) and make sure they have some Skype Credit. Skype WiFi is made available through WiFi operators around the world. For a complete list of supported hotspots, visit
