It is available in most supermarkets in Warsaw and in many local newspaper stores. Sounds simple?

But you are depended on a place, where the hot spot is. The range is often not enough strong to reach the Internet. Websites while using a local router (which shares Internet to even several dozen of people) could be loading very slowly, so if you are not patient, forget about public hot spots.

The most important information to remember is safety. Most hot spots are not secured, what makes your device possible to be hacked. Be sure that you are not having an important documents or any data while using a public hot spot.

However, the fees for each 100KB of Internet transfer used through roaming are very high which makes this option not feasibly for an Youtube users or for making international business contacts in Poland. Remember to use mobile roaming reasonably, mainly in very important moments.

Some solutions could be very simple to use along, but their price of usage could be very high. Using Polish WiFi is really easy and cheap, so this could be the most reasonable idea when you are going the Polish capital soon.
