Hey all, any one know of a net cafe I can take my laptop into and hook up to the Internet? I want to download a fair chunk of my Steam account as I've had all the plants vs zombies I can take right now and need some serious gaming... Searching on-line so far brings up closed places in the Red Zone Cry  Thanks

Are you looking for free WiFi in cafes? I would've thought most cafes will limit daily usage to a couple of hundred megabytes, not even close to what you want to download...

It might be wiser to look at whether your isp or any of your friends isp's have unmetered Steam downloads, then grab one of the app's/firewall rule settings which limit your steam to download from those servers only.
Major advantage to this is that you can leave your laptop running without sitting in a cafe for a whole day.
