Internet Week began in New York City in 2008, and incorporated
over 250 events last year. 2010 sees the première of the five-day
festival in Europe, with the schedule of events to take place
throughout London. It is presented by the International Academy of
Digital Arts and Sciences, and is open to any willing company eager to
participate in this celebration of the digital industry in Europe.
Running from the 8th - 12th November, the festival, boasting over 80 events, will be
enhanced by the announcement that Skype will be subsidising free Wi-Fi access
throughout the UK for the duration of the event via the Skype Access service.
Commenting on the relationship between Skype and the Internet Week Europe,
Co-Chairman David-Michel Davis said:
“What better way to celebrate that impact than partnering with Skype to make the
Internet more accessible than ever.”
It certainly does show a commitment on Skype's part to further the accessibility of
the internet in public places, albeit for the 5 days of the festival only. SEO
Experts QueryClick view the provision of free access as
a hugely positive addition to the Internet Week event, insisting that:
“It makes sense that internet access in public spaces should be offered for free in
accordance with the principles of the event, and the celebratory nature of the
The availability of free internet access to all in the UK increases the reach of the
week of talks, conferences, challenges, and debates to all those outwith the London
perimeters. The inclusion of big name brands such as Google, BBC, Yahoo!, and
Lonely Planet ensures that the event will be a highly popular one, luring in the
crowds with the crop of digital celebrity.
For SEO company QueryClick, the arrival of Internet
Week to the UK heralds another level of digital integration into British culture,
and offers a means of sharing and developing our knowledge of the online sphere.
