German ICEs have some coaches that are considered to be "quiet zones" and some coaches are "talking zone". There are symbols on the walls that tell you what zone you are in. The symbols can be seen here: http://www.bahn.de/p/view/service/zug/handy_u_ruhebereiche.shtml So technically having a telecon is allowed in the "talking zones". For fairness, it is ...

While it won't show ports or limits or tell you much more about the cafe (for now), you can see locations and speeds using Instabridge. It shows a map around you with available wifi, the location (eg name of cafe) and the tested speed of the connection. I've found it a handy quick resource for finding a cafe nearby.

I know an excellent service that has a highly informal interaction and is able to make suggestions based on vague requirements. It can ask questions to refine your requirements, and is even able to suggest modifications to those requirements if it thinks you can find a good deal. It has access to all the other websites that offer cheap travel, and can pick ...

In addition to the info provided by DCTLib, do note that there is a bar (called “Bordbistro”) and in most cases a “restaurant” area where you can seat. If you do manage to set up a connection (and like others have already commented, I doubt that you could get a really good one), you could also look for a compartment (unlike Thalys or TGV, ICE trains also ...

There is a booth at the arrival terminal of Istanbul Atatürk Airport. The company is called IUGO. They are renting WiFi modems, smartphones, tablets and GPS navigators. The service became available in June 2014. WiFi modems and smartphones cost 6EUR/day to rent. Here's a photo of the location (sourced from IUGO's official Twitter page):

It should be a reply to OPs question in the comments but I don't have 50 reputation yet. If moderators can merge it somehow, please, feel free. Abonament is a long-term contract. Karta is pay-as-you-go. It is pre-paid and you charge it by buying and redeeming codes (e.g. in convenience stores and newsstands). Mix is, well, a mix of two. You pay as you go, ...

There are two logical answers - one a lot cheaper than the other: office hire. If this is an important call, you could look at hiring office space for a half a day. There are various companies that offer this service. A very quick search showed me companies like instantoffices.com - http://www.instantoffices.com/en/fr/office-space/paris?for=0-3&size=1 ...

I can't tell you about Heathrow airport arrivals, however in pretty much all towns and cities (and in several "out of town" sites as well), you will find the general purpose mobile shop Carphone Warehouse, and shops for the four major mobile networks: EE, Vodaphone, O2 and Three. Any of these will happily sell you a dongle and a pay as you go/one month ...

According to the Verizon Trip Planer they don't offer LTE roaming to Germany for all devices I checked. You can use that tool to look up coverage and plans based on your devices. Even if this were working, the plans seem more expensive than what you can get in Germany. All networks now provide LTE coverage but you need an unlocked device which works with ...

If you are staying on the North Island in populated areas (which you are, mostly), you should have no trouble with Vodafone coverage. The coverage gets a bit thin in more remote areas on the South Island, but that's not a problem for your planned trip.

Of course! There's the Coworking Wiki! And if you'd like a simple directory, they have a Coworking Directory indexed by location, and with a map as well. There's an iPhone app to find coworking places. There's also Sharedesk - which lets you search and book any one of thousands of meeting places world-wide as well.

The other answers so far have been mostly from a social aspect, I want to add an engineer's aspect as well: most mobile phone technologies have a "speed limit" at which they can reliably work. I am not referring to data transfer speed, but to relative speed between the handset and the base station. Depending on the exact technology (GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, ...

I'm a Chinese student who just came back to China from US a month ago. As most VPN protocols have their own characteristics, GFW is able to detect VPN connections and reset/block VPN connections. Although VPNs can be blocked, if you use your own server and don't have a very heavy traffic, you might still be able to use it. One of the most popular methods ...

The Wikipedia article on this subject is often incorrect. For up to date info on which sites are blocked, I suggest you look at https://en.greatfire.org/ who actually test the sites availability. The main ones your will miss are Google (everything including Gmail and Play App store on your phone), YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, Blogspot, Wordpress, ...

What about adioso It gives you the option to specify a destination city, country, region, continent or even simply 'anywhere', 'international' or 'domestic'. You can also specify a date or a date range for either outbound or inbound flights: It then lists the results in a very neat way as if they were packages: The only thing I wasn't able to find ...

The short answer is, you can't. If you're in Poland, you'll be connecting to the Internet through an IP address known to correspond to Poland, and this is what services what Netflix use to geolocate where you are and block accordingly. What you can do, though, is proxy your traffic: you send it all over to another machine in your target country, in this ...

To answer your first question, yes they do random checks on laptops and disks, but this is rare. In my last 15 years I only had it once. They suspected some CDs on me and checked them, they also opened my laptop and searched for photos! That's it. They are usually targeting porn content. Regarding the internet access, no, there is nothing that will surprise ...

Most Wifi Upload Speeds Are Probably Less Than 5Mbps It looks like most terrestrial ISPs in Bali are using legacy copper (ie. repurposed telephone and coaxial TV cables). The highest upload speed you'll achieve at any single site served by legacy copper is most likely limited to 5Mbps. The 5 Mbps upload speed limitation is inherent to most legacy copper ...

I guess, you are looking for a list of this kind: The Most Popular Online Booking Sites in Travel This summarizes the country wise usage of each site so that you can get an idea depending on the area you want to visit. However, this list mostly shows the names of various international websites in use which may show you discounts and offers in the first ...

There are a few coworking spaces for rent on Sharedesk for around 20EUR for the whole day. It may be possible to work at a cafe or the airport, but these spaces are more reliable in terms of comfort for getting work done and internet connection as well.

(Note: I am not connected to this company either as a client or employee, I simply found them via Google) It appears that Regus has some space available in Brussels for rent by the hour. There were several listed as Day Offices, Fully Equipped. Most were listed at either ~15 Euro or ~25 Euro.

First of all, Chili (MTML network) does not seem to have any "fast" mobile internet offer. Its website mentions GPRS or EDGE as technologies, some kind of receivers having a speed of up to 3Mbps. It seems confirmed by its absence from the list of LTE networks. Regarding the two other networks, Orange/Mauritius Telecom and Emtel, they both have started ...

This doesn't exist. Per Wikivoyage Internet cafes can be found at ETESCA (the state telephone company) offices, in Hotel Habana Libre, Hotel Inglatera (cheapest but slowest), Hotel Nacional and at the Capitolio. The Wikipedia article on ETECSA: The cost of Internet access is CUC$4.50 per hour (or CUC$0.60 for domestic intranet access and CUC$1.50 ...

Probably every major provider has something in this direction (that is, I know that two have it, not sure for one, and everything else are just resellers of these three) Recommendation: A1 has (at least) two prepaid data plans, best coverage (measured, not subjectivly), etc., see below. Don't use: "3", because since they merged with another company, ...

I am not aware of short term rental of either USB 3G/4G dongles in the United Kingdom, and have not seen these advertised either in domestic mobile phone shops or when passing through British airports - it should be noted though that this travel has not often been for business purposes, and I already have unlimited data and wireless tethering available ...
