I go on about 3-5 vacations a year, (it's hubby who loves them so much), and it's imperative I'm able to conduct my IM business abroad.
If we're stopping in a hotel (as we are doing for 2 weeks in Cape Verde in Nov), it's imperative there is a wireless connection. I usually spend the weeks in the runup to the vacation worrying about whether it will work or not.
If we stay in an apartment, I' find an internet caff. (Limited, but managable)
If I'm on the move in the UK, I use mobile broadband which is perfect, (tho a tad slow), however this becomes dreadfully expensive once I leave the UK.
So, question is, is there an ideal method of being able to connect to the Internet when your abroad without having to sell your first born to achieve it.
I don't want to sit on the beach tapping on the lappie, (might get sand in it), but I'd like to be able to sit on my balcony downing a bottle of the hotels finest without worrying about whether I'm going to drop my connection to their and miss wireless connection.
I could connect through my phone if I wanted to, but again its really expensive (and erratic)
