A friend of mine bought a prepaid Telecom Xtra to use with HotSpot in Christchurch to find out that Hoyts Riccarton has Wireless HotSpot open to its customer for free. I tried at Hoyts Moorhouse Ave, I need to have Xtra username and password.

Is there anyway, I can find out where is free and where is not?

All Telecom Hostpots are free until the end of the year. You need, as noted, a Xtra user account. If you don't have one you can open a Xtra account for e-mail only ($2.50/month) and use it.

As far as I know, Hoyts Riccarton is not part of Telecom's Wireles Hotspot service, it is provided by Hoyts Riccarton for its patron free. You should see a notice/sign on the pillars with Wireless Hotspot service available to Hoyts patrons.

I know that, but when we had a meeting last week at the intermission cafe at Hoyts Riccarton, that's what we used during pver presentation. But when we tried to do the same at Hoyts Moorhouse, it doesn't seem the work the same way.
