Free Wifi in India for iPad

We are travelling to India in 2 weeks time, starting in south India for 2 weeks and then north for 2 weeks. I am wondering on the free wifi ability through out the country. We are staying in mid range priced hotels. Thanks

Wifi is available in most mid range places in India. The only area we had trouble was Ladakh, but I assume you are

not going there at this time of the year...

Like Zauberberg mentions, Wifi is prevelant across most of the mid sized hotels across the country. But Free wifi (as what your heading reads) options are confined to very few places in each town. For example, some Cafe Coffee day outlets in Chennai do have a free wifi option. Some of the top end watch brand boutiques let you access Wifi when you are at their store (though their firewall seems to blank out quite a few sites) and so on.

Your best bet is to grab a pre paid plan for your smartphone with 3G data connectivity and turn your mobile into a secured wifi hotspot which will handle your ipads, laptops etc for connectivity needs.

We had FREE Wifi in all mid-range and some budget hotels/guesthouses (except in Ladakh), travelling last August/ September for 8 weeks. However some connections were better than others...

Even in metro cities you will have free WI-FI in places as mentioned above posts and Hotels with 4* and above.

you cant trust on that for your necessaries.

you can opt for 3G SIM from airtel which will have optimum connectivity all over india.
