    Nihil, I don't know about England, but in the US a lot of motels advertise "Free Internet" service. Of course, what they mean is "Internet Service included in the price of the room." I wonder what they would say if someone took their laptop to the motel and asked them for the "Free Internet"?
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Hi preacherman,

    Yes, we have the same kind of thing over here. By "free" they mean that they don't charge customers anything extra, which some establishments do.

    I live in a small town (pop. 32,000). We have the following facilities for free WiFi connections:

    1. Railway station
    2. Bus station.
    3. 2 public libraries (also provide wired connection and PCs whilst open)
    4. Tourist information office.

    There are also hotels and bars, but you would be expected to buy something.

    I've done a few amusing things to get me some free interwebz. My favourite would have to be messing with a pay phone enough so that it would let me use a dial up account.

    used to sneak out late at night. ( I was only a teenager and didn't have internet connection at parents house).
    with my trusty p2 laptop that took near 5minutes to boot up and a further 5minutes to establish an dial up connection and at least 1 1/2 minutes to load up the browser.
