Amsterdam is fully covered with WiFi. The problem is that most WiFi hotspots are protected with a password. Most people don’t even mind sharing their internet connection. The problem with an open WiFi connection is that it is easy to break in to someone’s computer.

There is a solution:

FON is a community that shares internet connections worldwide. If you share your internet connection, you can access all internet connections from all the FON members worldwide for free.

You can share your internet connection by buying a special router.
