On a recent trip to Halifax, Canada I tried to get online using an open/unprotected wireless network before I tried the pay and play route. I found two free wireless networks. The stronger signal belonged to Salty’s restaurant who offer free WiFi. You just need to create a free account and the default page to do so displays the Salty’s menu. Connectivity was quite good and I got a lot of work done. The bottom line is that almost all guests at the Marriott Harborfront who need WiFi can get connected for free. And people usually end up visiting Salty’s. I know I did. I find this to be a great marketing strategy.
