Wifi is available on the majority of ICE trains (>90%), but it is not guaranteed to work (so you won't get a rebate in case it does not work). Also, Wifi is only available on certain tracks, as seen on this map: http://www.bahn.de/p/view/mdb/bahnintern/mdb_174376_karte_railnet_2015.pdf Whether you get Internet on your trip also depends on the route that ...

I am currently living near Pisa, and have spent time in Rome and other cities. The free Wi-Fi situation is... variable. There can be issues and some setup required, but you shouldn't have too much trouble. Many cities and large shopping centers do offer free Wi-Fi services (There is something called "Wi-Pi" for most of Pisa, and the project you linked to is ...

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 ...

So, here I gather a few names mentioned in the web pages listed in the resources below: kismetbali.com: a cafe/restaurant/shop providing fast internet, see on the website `Finding fast internet in Ubud has been quite a challenge. We pay top dollar to provide our customers with fastest Fiber Optic available in the region. Uploads or Downloads its ...

I don't think its feasible to know all of this information because a lot of the stuff you are searching for (wifi, power supply) are not dependent on the flight, but rather the airplane being used on that flight (and that is subject to change without any notification). You might be booked on a 777 for Flight A, but they have to change the aircraft to a ...

Thanks to @Relaxed 's helpful comments I now know at least the power situation: right now you might find yourself on a train where only first class has power but this is changing and at some indefinite point in the future every seat will have power. Details: The SBB timetable change on 14 December 2014 says: From 14 December, passengers will be able to ...

How about Coworking Salzburg? They rent coworking space for as little as 25EUR (as of writing), including a desk, power outlets and Wi-Fi. The location is not exactly central, but to be fair coworking spaces rarely are.

I lived in that zone for three years (1993-1996), and I have traveled in it several times more recently, but this is the first I have ever heard of its existence. How did you even become aware of it? I lived in Lexington, VA, and my travels have been mainly on the Blue Ridge and in the Shenandoah and James River valleys. I can't speak for areas closer to ...

About cafes and such: A generally valid answer if a cafe has outlets near the tables won´t be possible, but nobody will have a problem if you just ask. More than "yes, there and there" or "no" won´t happen. This site lists some cafes, restaurants etc. with free WIFI: Afro Cafe, Bürgerspitalplatz 5 Altstadt Hotel Garni Trumer Stube, Bergstraße 6 ...

There is advertising for free Wi-Fi at Guangzhou airport but.......... You have to buy a local sim card from a 'ripoff' seller (CNY 100 = AUD $22.) with virtually no credit on it. But it gives you the local number you have to enter to receive a Wi-Fi passcode. Any attempt to access the Wi-Fi will direct you to the official Wi-Fi webpage for registering. As ...

I can talk about the wifi coverage there. What I've been doing recently to determine speed of connections is to use Instabridge (not my app) - a free app for Android, that does two very important things: Shows where open wifi is (including password-protected ones which have been crowd-sourced - e.g. a kind soul has added his home wifi to the list). This ...

So long as you're using your own computers using SSL/TLS on websites should be sufficient, with a few caveats. Make sure you don't have any rogue CA certs installed. eg. Superfish. Make sure that the URL in the address bar always says https instead of http to protect against sslstrip style attacks. Also, this question might be better posted on ...

Trains from Zurich to Milan are serviced by a number of companies. For routes that start with InterCity trains, Wi-Fi is offered in 1st class. Source Routes using InterRegio have free Wi-Fi, RegioExpress trains may also have Wi-Fi, please confirm. Source I don't know about EuroCity trains.

If your laptop has a relatively good antenna, then you can stalk the outside of Delta Sky Club lounges and see if you can pick up their free internal wifi. There was a period when they were enforcing passwords / logins, but this is no longer the case apparently (I now have a mobile plan that allows sharing, so I no longer lounge-stalk).

There is a lot about this here. In summary, onboard telephones are of a design/spec/performance that is compatible with avionics, whereas some of the portable electronic equipment owned by the general public may not be as safe. Some passengers do appreciate communications contact while in the air so some airlines/aircraft cater to their wishes by ...

Update 13 Sep 2014. It took one hour twenty minutes to get access to Boingo when the airport was less than half full. Boingo is a joke and the sooner Emirates ditch their contract the better. I have used DXB for 10 years and it has always worked OK. Since Boingo took over the operation it is crap.

Not sure about Laos and Malaysia but I didn't have any wifi issues in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, especially if you're located in the CBD or a very touristy area. If you ultimately need a guaranteed reliable connection on your travels, TEP wireless might be a good idea.
