3DS owners get more free public wi-fi in the UK

The Cloud

Nintendo has announced a partnership today with The Cloud wi-fi network that will allow 3DS owners in the UK free access to over 5,000 public hotspots.

The Cloud, a¬†British Sky Broadcasting subsidiary, covers many shops, pubs, and restaurants, including Pizza Express and EAT chains, and will allow for general browsing, eShop access, and the use of SpotPass, which downloads content and notifications while the handheld is in sleep mode. Nintendo had previously commented on The Cloud’s broadband speeds being unsuitable for gaming.

Said Dawn Paine, Nintendo UK marketing director, “Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve and add new features all the time. The Cloud partnership represents another exciting step that will continue to expand its appeal and encourage owners to take their Nintendo 3DS systems with them wherever they go, offering different and unique experiences every day.”
