Shame most of them are BTOpenZone. Have you ever had a look at their pricing plan? £6/hour!

That's what war-walking/driving/chalking's for :twisted:

They're probably charging a premium because they know if someone needs access to the internet urgently when they're on the road then they'll pay the price for it. Just drive about and find some private unsecured Wi-Fi network instead... ;)

For free WiFi all you need is a laptop installed with a copy of NetStumbler.

85% of all WiFi nets are insecure.

Just steal it. It's more fun that wat ;>
