Every public place should have these… and one day, perhaps they will. Until then, we have to track them down. Problem is that there isn’t one go-to place on the web that shows all the free wi-fi hotspots. Perhaps just as well – it would be a huge site. So here’s a list of links to some sites I’ve found listing free wi-fi hotspots around the world. If paid hotspots are also included, I’ve noted that. I haven’t included many sites dealing with individual towns and cities for obvious reasons but you could try a Google search for “free-wifi” yourcityname

    Try WhereAndWifi’s Google maps mash up to choose free wifi hotspots with lots of useful information like user ratings, comments, noise level, outlet saturation, menu items.

    Thanks for that. Doesn’t seem to show up much outside the US at the moment though.
