London Wireless Internet for Free?
April 4, 2005 9:23 AM   Subscribe

I work as a freelance translator, and until I got my hands on an old laptop last week, I was confined to the house to work. Now I want to celebrate my new-found freedom by going to work in lots of different places around London. Help me do this on the cheap.

Anyone have any experience of mobile working? Preliminary research suggests that hotspots in e.g. Starbucks have a high hourly fee, and I found some links describing Broadreach's 'hotzone' around Soho, but that was only free for its first few months. I can get by without internet, but it would make my life nicer :) Any resources anyone would like to share?

It might help if I remember to say that the laptop is wireless-enabled, i.e. I don't need hardware help (yet). oops.

Have a look at this UK wi-fi hot spot map.

Or this one might be more useful, lets you search by postcode.

There are two coffee shops on Brick Lane, E1 called 'coffee @ Brick Lane' that offered free wi-fi access about a year or so ago. I'd be surprised if they've started charging since.
