Had an email the other regarding free wi-fi in Asia. For anyone who is n’t familiar with the term ‘wi-fi’ it is basically wireless broadband and can be found at various places such as airports, coffee bars etc.
You basically rock up and logon to the network and you have free broadband speed Internet connection from your own laptop! (Your laptop must have a wi-fi card plugged in or have one built in)
Well the person who emailed me mentioned an excellent web site called <a href="http://www.wififreespot.com/asia.html">Wifi Free Spot</a> which is a database of free spots around the globe and importantly for me Asia too.
Free Internet is a dream for a working nomad. While the Internet cafes in Southeast Asia are pretty cheap anyway it all adds up. There are times when I could really do with a 3 or 4 hour session from my laptop rather than downloading files onto my USB memory stick and plugging it into an Internet cafe PC.
Sometimes while surfing the Internet I spot something and would really like to tweak my site there and then but I can’t at the moment.
Alas there is no free wifi here in Bali but I am heading to Kuala Lumpur on the 12th of November and should be able to find some free wifi.
