Mobile Wireless Connection in Batu Ferringhi

Maybe this is more a question for sites like Alloexpat or Britishexpat but thought I would toss it in and see what replies I get.

I head to Penang in November and will be staying in an apartment that a friend has rented (I think Eden Fairway). I will be needing to check my emails a few times a day and really do not want to be going to internet places all of the time.

I know I may be able to use the facilities at certain hotels located along the stretch (if I purchase a meal etc).

Any suggestions / recommendations re wireless providers in Penang !!!

Many Thanks

This site lists available location around Penang http://www.wok.com.my/penang-free-wifi.php . You can even access free Wi-Fi on Rapid Penang Buses thestar.com.my/news/story.asp… only used the free access at Parkroyal with no problems.

Found this comment amusing !!! cant quite see me on one of the buses with my notebook checking emails (especially with their driving habits) but found the idea entertaining.
