There are a few options. Starbucks as you mention already offers free wifi (but you need to confirm via email first, which can be a pain) NTT East offers a free 14-day Wifi access card for foreign tourists that lets you access Flets Wifi spots all over Tokyo. You can get one of these on presentation of your passport at any of these distribution points. ...

It's available on some ICE routes, but not all. Cost wise there it's 4,95€ a day, though there's a small number of roaming partners with whom you can get online in standard class too (mostly T-Mobile Germany though) DB has a page that lists the current routes it's available on, and have a pdf map. I believe it's being slowly rolled out to more trains over ...

FlexiBus and Meinferinbus offer Free Wi-Fi, but no electric socket. As far as I know berlinlinienbus doesn't offer Wi-Fi nor electric socket. Eurolines offers Wi-Fi and electric socket in the Eurolines Business class buses

There is no single source to check if there is Wi-Fi in a certain flight or not. The best thing you can do right now is to check the airline's website to see if the flight supports Wi-Fi or not. Remember, if the airline advertises Wi-Fi that does not mean all its fleet/flights has it. Sometimes certain types of airplanes in an airline have it while others ...

I would recommend you to get someone to write down for you how to say the proper question in Chinese, print it out and show it to people. That would bridge the language gap. From my perspective your real issue is that you do not only need a power outlet, but a chair next to it and a permission to sit there for a while and work. If you would have a working ...

I can think of a few reasons: Verifying the identity of Wi-fi users, in case a court subpoena comes in requesting information about a certain user. It's not a bullet-proof method (many countries offer anonymous sim-cards), but it's probably good enough in most cases. Some countries may also ban fully anonymous Wi-fi (such as Germany or Turkey). Making sure ...

I found this article giving a few options. Especially the second one seems to fit your criteria: Lipstick 19, Rue Désirée M: Hôtel de Ville This café is a close second to the Voxx. There’s a nice little vibe and they have great booths if you’re staying for lunch. If not, they’re happy to let you sit at the bar and check your email or do whatever ...

In general airlines will go out of their way to tell you if the plane you are currently on has Wifi/Internet Access - as that's how they make their money out of wifi! How they do this varies between airlines, but generally includes : Brochures/cards in the seat-back pocket telling you how to connect Wifi logos on the plane, either at the boarding door ...

When I was last at T3 in Dubai, the terminal did have free wi-fi but it was excruciatingly slow. Boingo hotspots are present in all terminals in Dubai International Airport. As per this article, it is the exclusive data provider. Here is the Boingo coverage map: Here are the specific details for the airport: For a more long term option, and if you ...

That´s correct, you can find free wifi nearly everywhere in Iceland. If you leave the capital city for the countryside, I would advice you to get a hotspot device. This is really convenient to be able to search for some places, highlights or find the phone number of a guesthouse or campsite. This is quite cheap and the coverage is good (a bit less in the ...

LAX now offers Free WiFi throughout the airport, along with a relatively cheap upgrade for 'premium' connection speeds. Credit cards are accepted at most (all?) shops and restaurants, and power outlets can be found around the airport. Expect competition for an ideally located open outlet at peak times - traveling with a splitter or power strip can make you ...

Munich airport free WiFi is now available for as long as you want! Munich Airport rolls-out unlimited free wifi

I noticed this too when I was in Thailand. My guess would be that since fast Internet access, the kind that a commercial establishment would need to serve multiple guests, is relatively expensive in South / South-East Asia, they try to regulate access points for maintaining speeds. So for instance in the morning, guests would typically be out, and return in ...

Chinese Yelp is called Dianping -- the Hohhot section is here: http://www.dianping.com/huhehaote Search for 咖啡 ("coffee") Click the button that says 总体评价 ("overall rating") to sort the highest rated shops to the top Click the first location, a cafe called 艾乐咖啡屋 ("Ai Le Coffee") on 赛罕区万达广场东区底商26-67号(近万达东巷) ("26-27 East Dishang Rd (cross road: East Wanda ...

You can check seatguru ( example). Under "In-flight amenities" wifi availability is indicated. Some airlines are still experimenting with only a handful of planes with wifi, but I expect seatguru to be the most complete resource on this topic.

For Singapore, it is because of the law---they want to be able to track you down if necessary. It is the same even when you are trying to buy a S$15 prepaid phone card---you need to give your identification number (either your National Registration Identification Card number or some other number if you're a foreigner) and the seller needs to record it down. ...

I ended up going with Boingo as suggested by @karancan above. Specifically: I pre-purchased their $7.95/month "Mobile only" plan (this has to be done before you arrive in Dubai!) I paired my Android phone and Mac laptop On the phone, I turned on Bluetooth tethering (Settings > Wireless & Networks > Tethering > Bluetooth tethering) On the Macbook, I ...

I don't think you are in Yunnan Province anymore. The only Jincheng I can find (晋城) is in Shanxi Province (山西). In a similar question, I linked the Chinese version of the popular Western website Yelp, called Dianping. For reference, the Dianping site for Jincheng is: http://www.dianping.com/jincheng Unfortunately, no one is really using Dianping in ...
