One with good signal on the corner of Carnoustie Dr and St Annes Crs in Wattle Downs, Auckland. Called Belkin still I think. Stood there when it was raining once and jumped on skype on my phone to ring home and get them to pick my up since i had no texts or credit left on phone. Very handy. lol

I've found most of the time that McDonalds WIFI isn't working and the staff can't assist.

I am no saint but isn't it illegal to use someone else's private wifi connection without their permission?

This thread should focus more on places that do offer free wifi (eg Mobil, McD's) than on locations where people have forgotten to lock down their private wifi connections.

That is all...

Agreed with the previous poster... Talk about free wifi services offered to public, not about unlocked private WiFi.

Is their a map of all the wifi hotspots in NZ already - if not maybe we should put one together?


Free octagon wireless in dunedin is pretty good, you only get 50mb but its quick and the coverage area is actually pretty good.

Telecom has set up phone booths with free wifi around Christchurch, SSID: "Telecom Free Wifi" - Works pretty well :)

Btw, 1000 posts!

They've also just setup free Wifi in The Hub Hornby shopping mall in Christchurch which covers most of the mall. Big plus to them.

Congrats on the big 1000!
