Not having used the Telcom hotspot, I can't say.

However, most of those hotspots require you to use a web browser to authenticate yourself once you are on the network. 
That means the device will not connect automatically.

I have heard of iPod Touch's working on these types of hotspots, so it's probably not "that they are all crap".

Once you open a web browser and try to surf somewhere, you'll be presented with a "log in" screen.  Log in, and the
device is then able to properly connect to other services.
