I have a user that wants Internet service from different countries that she will be in off and on over the year. Does anyone know of an international type of internet service that might work for her?

Dunno, but you might try Demon in the UK; they offer their services also in some other countries afaik; it was my former ISP although I'm not in the UK. Worth a try.Here's the address:http://www.demon.net/contactus/index.htmledit: just checked the link to Demon in my country;Here its going to be merged in a couple of weeks with another ISP.

She may do better just relying on internet cafes. We were in Australia for 5 weeks and Hawaii for one and I used internet cafes exclusively. Before we left, I researched the locations (street addresses) of all cafes in the cities we were going to. I had no trouble locating facilities except in Hawaii. The the hotel offered access but the price wasn't what I was willing to pay. We did find a local run internet cafe downtown and the price was right.What countries so I can do a little digging at Freedomlist? http://www.gonuts4free.co.uk/ although the site says UK and Spain, a poster at FL was able to get help to get access for a holiday in Italy.

Googling Internet+Cafe+List yielded a large number of lists of internet cafes all over the world.

T/As, Flying J, and many Star Bucks, and other places all over the US have WiFi available for short stints as well as longer ones.But you can't rely on that in other countries necessarily.So a dialup alternative such as cellphone connection maybe would be worth looking into? Which ones will give the largest coverage for the areas of travel would be the trick.

Are you suggesting a little "war driving" Marsden??
Nope...Many if not most of the small no-name coffee shops offer free WiFi to attract customers and to compete against the giants like Starbucks. I've never seen a town that had no coffee shops... here and abroad.

This is some great info. I have found out that the person needing this will be working in Paris, France and nowhere else, which makes this easier. I recommended they see if he can get a hotel that has Internet access in the room. If not I recommended they find some Internet cafe's or investigate a Paris ISP for dial-up service. I'll Google some things specific to Paris and give them the results. Thanks for your help and ideas.

Here's what is available in France1. http://www.free.fr/ (looks like you may get 50 hours free) http://subscribe.free.fr/login/2. http://www.freesurf.fr/freesurf/rtc.php free except for the price of a phone callThere were two others listed but they don't seem to be internet access any longer.I did find another3. http://www.dixinet.com/dixinet.asp?menu=navigation-offre.asp again free except for the price of a phone callIf she were traveling to several countries, this is an option (but expensive at 4.8¢ per minute) so $2.88 every hour http://www.mytravelaccess.com/Put Paris in here http://www.world66.com/searchand you get links to more than 50 internet cafe sites.Wanadoo became Orange on June 1, 2006. I went to the Orange site but I can't figure out if they offer free internet access. I think it is tied in with tv and there is also a mobile phone section. http://www.orange.fr/Finally, go here http://www.jiwire.com/ and put in Paris, France and select Free wifi hotspots. There are 197 hits! If she takes a notebook, have her look over the list and select either a hotel listed here to stay at, or print out the coffee shops in the area.
