I have found a recent article by Barry Collins in the Sunday Times, feb 19th. Back page of the Sports section for some reason.

Time to halt the Wifi rip-off

"The sky high prices at most of Britain's wireless internet hotspots is nothing short of scandalous."

Barry wonders if a hotel should charge extra for central heatings or air conditioning or set up different areas for those prepared to pay. He reports that a coffee shop in Brighton is paying £100 a month to Loose Connection for free wifi on offer to all customers.

Maybe five cups of coffee a day extra to cover this cost. Surely this is the future.
