Re: Free wifi in Basel

You mean apart from the usual McDonald's and Starbuck Coffee Houses?

Re: Free wifi in Basel

The cafe fumare/non fumare has free wifi, if I remember correctly, as do the more modern trams of the BLT (the modern yellow ones on lines 10 and 11, they normally have BLT FreeNet written on the doors).

Re: Free wifi in Basel

2 or 3 years ago it used to be hard to find but now a days it is pretty much everywhere. EG. all Manor, Coop and Migros restaurants have it, Starbucks, McDonalds, Hitzbergers, Movenpick cafe in Marktplatz, many SBB stations (including Basel) have a wireless hotspot, not just the number 10 trams but also the 17 and a couple of the number 8's have it, as do many postbus services (although these are more in BL than BS). And more unusual service providers have it - my rather staid (but good ) hairdresser in Aschenplatz surprised me a few weeks ago by providing a printed out slip with a password for 2 hours free wifi in response to my query, as did my dentist, just yesterday.

So my advice is, just go where you normally go and do what you normally do but ask if they have wifi ... as often they don't advertise the fact. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Re: Free wifi in Basel

Dear all,

I just realized that the place I am going to stay in Basel for 5 weeks has no wifi!

My questions:

Can any of you suggest if there is a mobile wifi provider with no contract whatsoever that I can buy for 5 weeks?

Or is there any free wifi spot near Messeplatz in Basel?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Free wifi in Basel

Here you will find cafes with free wifi:

The Stücki Shopping Center has Free Wifi as well.

The nearest places (with wifi) to the messeplatz will be starbucks , greifengasse or mc donalds at the Basel bad bhf
