Hotspot Locator

Where are they?

This is one area where swift progress is being made. Almost weekly, the providers are announcing new hotspot locations around the country.

For now, this isn't the easiest page to use. We intend to have an easily searchable database shortly. There will also be an option to input information about your experience with using any particular hotspot.

A long term objective for this is to have a clickable map that will list hotspots close to the area selected.

Hotspot Providers; Please work harder on coming to a roaming arrangement. We believe that a more reasonable monthly tarriff in addition to the roaming ability will increase traffic exponentially. A reasonable monthly tarriff would be in the order of €30 to €40.

Lastly, if you know of a hotspot that isn't on the page, please let us know as it will help everybody.
