The internet situation

Friday 2nd January - 1 month, 17 days

The best $14.10 ever spent: taking my laptop to the super expensive internet place and chatting to friends online for a couple of hours. Ahhhhh.

Internet pricing here is random and insane:

At Sugars Cafe (comfy chairs and desks, ok speed, aircon, no viruses on network, in main street): $6 an hour, $5 if you use your own laptop.

At ‘$1 Broadband Fast Connection 24 Hours’ (plastic chairs, tiny desks, reasonable speed but often slows down, aircon, totally has viruses on network, in back street): $1 an hour.

At another place even further away it was $4 an hour and we couldn’t get one page to load.

At One More Bar: they apparently discontinued their ‘$4.50 for an hour and a half’ deal and now you pay $100 to get 720 hours of usage that you have to use within 45 days.

EDIT: Matt used the wireless at One More Bar the other day and he got charged the hourly rate! What?!
