Free or cheap Wifi available in or near Broadstairs?

Hi all,

does anybody know whether there is any free or cheap public WiFi available in or near Broadstairs? I am going to stay there in June and using my germany mobile internet is far too expensive...

Thanks,

Arthur

You could buy a pay as you go 'dongle' from Vodafone etc. I am using one now in UK. Might be cheaper than having to go to a pub as customer, and have to buy a beer for half an hour on the net.

Otherwise, check wifi listings through Google although with a quick search I did not find any in Broadstairs itself, just one in the Caffe Nero coffeeshop in the Westwood Shopping Centre which is a mile from Broadstairs.

There must be a pub or two, surely??

McDonalds in Westwood Cross (next to Sainsbury) offers free wifi as do all their establishments in the UK. However this is a distance from the sea front so may not be convenient

Cheers to you all.

Does one have to register with McD as in Germany or is it really free and can be accessed without registration ?
