iPod touch gets Wi-Fi hotspot access

Apple teams up with The Cloud in the UK

iPod touch owners are being offered the Wi-Fi hotspot service Apple has previously announced for the iPhone in the UK.

Wireless network operator The Cloud, the same partner Apple and O2 will use for the iPhone's Wi-Fi access, is introducing a £3.99 per month tariff for iPod touch users from today. iPhone owners will get the service for free with their O2 contract.

The new Wi-Fi service is called Cloud Unlimited Music and is not subject to any minimum term contract.

"We believe this is a significant step forward in making music, podcasts and video available when, and wherever, people really want it," said Owen Geddes, group director of business development at The Cloud. "iPhone users will soon be able to make the most of our Wi-Fi network with O2 and The Cloud when the iPhone is introduced in November, and we want to make sure people who have the WiFi-enabled iPod touch are able benefit from our network of over 7,500 hotspots, too."
