Sorry, me again! If in a French only speaking riad, cybercafe etc ask for "wee-fee). And "cyber" is pronounced "seeber". Just to avoid confusion!

I wouldn't say readily available. The important part of truebeliever's answer is SOME cafes, riads and hotels. In my experience FREE wifi access is few and far between in the city and you'll waste a lot of time trying to find it. Also, when you do find it, the bandwidth is often so bad that it adds up to a very frustrating experience.

EDIT: If things are better now, it would be helpful if someone lists some actual places where free wifi is available. Running around looking for it is not a viable option for most.

There are 3 or 4 McDonalds around Marrakech, they all have free WIFI access, also there are lots of cafes around with free WIFI access, they have the WIFI sign displayed in their windows.

The riad we stated at had free WIFI which had a fast speed and reliable connection, your riad/hotel will probable have free WIFI, if not then you will not have a problem finding a connection.

Hi,

I agree that free wi-fi is much more readily available than you may think and thank juve70 for listing just a few of the places you can find it.
