Internet Connection
« on: June 15, 2008, 04:11:14 PM »
I'm going on holiday to France over the Summer holidays, and I was wondering about getting an internet connection over there. At the moment we have a household network, which I can tap into with my laptop's built-in wireless. So I'm just asking for a quick low-down of the different ways I could get onto the internet for those two weeks, without having to hand over large sums of cash. I'm not that desperate, I'm just considering the possibility here.

I've never been to France, but one possibility could be if they have places with wifi, I don't know what places do but if they have things like Starbucks or things like that, that could be one possibility, a cafe or something might.  I don't know of libraries do or not.  airports may, but it's hard to hang around in an airport if you are not waiting for a flight.  Just a few ideas I had, maybe some or all of them will not work since I am not experienced in that area.  Others here will know more then I do.

You could get internet wherever you go no matter how close you are to a wifi location, however it costs a lot.  You have to sign a 1 year contract, pay $400-$600 for the card (depending on quality), and spend at least $60 monthly to have the service.  I have this service, but it's only because my school won't let me on their wifi. :angry: I would suggest getting it if you want to spend that sort of money.  You get insane speeds. :yes

I'm also going to France.. I just won't be online for 2 weeks because my parents want to go on holidays to have me away from internet.. For you.. I don't know. Internetcafe perhaps?(wonders if that's the right word)
