Internet Cafes in Paris



There are plenty of internet cafes in Paris.Looking for internet cafes in Paris?

Somewhere to check your email? Update your blog? Look for a job or apartment while you’re in Paris? Got your own laptop with you and just looking to get connected?

Well, you’re in luck – Starbucks all over Paris now have WiFi.

As much as I don’t really like Starbuck’s coffee [the cafes are appearing like mushrooms worldwide], they have added wireless internet in their Paris cafés – that’s “WiFi” to you and me [pronounced “WeeFee” in French].

Starbucks cafes in Paris now have wi-fi.Before you jump for joy, be prepared to pay the price of 4 euros 50 cents for 30 minutes [that’s around $AUD8.00, or $US6.00, as at April 2007]. If you’re ok with that, then it’s a good deal for you.

If you don’t want to pay, here is an alternative – check out this list of WiFi hot spots in Paris where you can ‘brancher’ [get connected] for free:

P.S.! French keyboards are different!

While you’re visiting these internet cafés, you will notice that the French keyboard has letters in different places than the English/US keyboard you may be used to. Yep, that’s right, they’re different. Now you could get annoyed about this, or you could hunt and peck out the words as you type :-)

I remember the first time I had to work on a French keyboard – I thought it was impossible! Took a few days before someone told me the ‘magic keystroke’ to change the keyboard into an English one, and now there are even better solutions which you can read about here.
