The RAPT has been very proud to anounce all this week that by september of 2012 there will be free Wifi available in the metro.
This is a new move for the transport agency following many public parks (Parc de la Villette in the 19th announced the entire park as a Wifi hotspot in the month of June) and landmarks that have began to offer REAL free Wifi (as opposed to the highly confusing company “FREE” that has a wifi network).
Down side: 1- you’ve got to hang out in the smelly pee-reeking metro.
2- you can very quickly get you Mobil device snatched by a run-by thief so be careful always keep both hands on your device.
Advantages: perfect for you to use google maps in a moment of sheer panic of not knowing where you are.
Ideal for that two minute Internet text or email to confirm plans or your arrival.
I wouldn’t count on this service for more than two-second cummins toons but it sure is good to have around.
