    Default Netbooks and pay-as-you-go dongles

    Hey,

    Can anyone tell me if NZ has pay-as-you-go internet dongles availible for contract purchase to be used with a netbook purchased either in the UK or in NZ?

    If not, whats Wi-Fi like out there?

    Are there many internet cafes about, and does anyone know the average rates they charge?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    When we first arrived I used the free wi-fi at the local library. No need to join the library either.

    Some info on the dongles here

    and if you don't already have one, buy your netbook in the UK as they are cheaper there than in NZ!

    As Jon already said, most libraries offer free wi-fi. There are a few free wi-fi hotspots around town too.

    Internet cafes ... think it's about $5 for approx 30 mins surfing.

    HTH,

    Thanks for the help :)

    I plan to be moving around a lot, so I'm not sure how often I'll get to the library, but its good to know you don't have to be a member to use the net!
