London (almost) tops Euro poll for free Wi-Fi

Comments (3)

The guys at have taken it upon themselves to track down free wireless internet hotspot across Europe and document it all on the site. London is placed second only to Paris and for the moment the number of these zones is still very limited. Nonetheless, comparing the two gets you a surprisingly good indication of each capital's culture. If you were to undertake a free Wi-Fi tour in each, Paris would see you inhabiting an enormous number of caf├ęs and expensive sounding restaurants (although that could be because of the French names), where as London should see you visiting a decent selection of watering holes including The Shaftesbury Tavern, The Westbourne and The Mucky Pup which seem like the right kind places to be our nation's wireless internet ambassadors. Sadly the vast majority of locations are actually hotels or the like, but I suppose you could still stride in, laptop in hand, sit at the bar and rack up a few stiff drinks to Mr Smith in room 104...

    Hardly a cpmprehensive site - it misses out a whole chunk of Islington Council's free hi fi

    Not a very comprehensive site - it fails to mention Islington council Streetnet where most of Upper Street is a free wifi zone.

    although the idea of mapping europe wifi hotspots is nice, it's still way too early to make any conclusions of the giving listing. it is very incomplete. where i live, the capital of estonia, Tallinn, there are close to 200 free WiFi hotspots. and the town, compared to London and Paris, is a village!
