    If you live in the UK then give "The Cloud" a call....
    If you live elsewhere, then whoever supplies your wifi hotspots. Try Starbucks first

    Hey Clash - Are you asking for help on setting it up to use at home with your internet connection? I'm assuming you have a home ISP provider.

    1) Go somewhere where there is wifi available--preferable free wifi if you can find it.
    2) Turn on WiFi in settings.
    3) Select the name of the network. If network is securred and you have the password, enter it in. Else, select an open network (will not have the padlock icon next to it).
    4) Close out of settings
    5) Open Safari and enjoy.

    Note: Many public wifi networks have a page that comes up that you have to look at before you can go anywhere. Just do what the page says, and enjoy.

    There should be no charge for wifi unless the person who is operating the wifi wants there to be a charge, and that welcome screen will let you know.

    Tip: Hotels and Motels almost always have free open wifi. If it is secured, just walk in and ask the front desk what the password is to get on. Just tell them that you are a guest and they will give you all the information you need.

    Bonus Tip: Hotels and Motels are also great for free breakfast in the mornings!

    thanks for all your help and tips

    just one further question - what is the maximum range/distance to connect with the wifi ?

    can you connect say 100 meters away or do you have to be within a certain range ?

    thanks again

    100 meters maybe too far, the best performance range should be around 20 meters for wooden house, or around 10 meters for concret house.
