I'm a Londoner, about to head to Calgary for a two month road-trip down the West Coast to Los Angeles.
I'm struggling to find basic info on WiFi access in the States. I've heard things about WiFI in the States being tricky.
In the U.K. if you have a laptop (in my case a Mac), a web browser and know the right (free access) spots, you can turn up, surf, send and receive e-mail (using your existing mail programme) and enjoy an overpriced beverage in the process.
I'm not too fussed about regular access, I'd just like once a week or so, to be able to check my e-mail, blog some things and surf the internet for local knowledge... Is it as simple in the States as it is in the U.K.?
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm basically looking for an Idiot's (read - 'Foreigner's') guide to WiFi in the States!
