[LJ2ME] Free Wireless [Aug. 13th, 2007|03:04 pm]
Now I have a wifi enabled mobile, I've been looking out for free wireless around the festival. Mostly this has been to allow us to look up reviews on Three Weeks and Edfringe, neither of whom have mobile data package friendly sites.

Pleasingly, there is a fair bit of free wifi about. We found a couple of coffee shops on south bridge, one of which even had a sign in the window. The Spiegel Garden (just south of the pleasance) has it throughout, which is where we are now. None of the C venues seem to :(

The underbelly has two different networks. One covers the box office (and press office), which is very handy for checking revues before you book. The bar, which has no mobile signal strength, has another, which works very well. I was even able to use Truphone from it, very nicely, to save me having to walk all the way up and out to place a call :)

All in all, it does prove to be a good festival for free wireless. No Fon though.
