Internet Availability

Q. What about internet connectivity? >>

One choice open to any travellers is free Wifi, which anyone with a mobile (with a New Zealand number) can access. Wifi hotspots are expanding across the country all the time. However Wifi reception is still patchy in many areas outside of main cities. Also 'free' wifi is not always free as it may involve making a purchase, such as cup of coffee at a cafe before they give you the Wi-fi password.
