25 May 2007 /  #1
I am moving to Krakow and would like to know what kind of internet connections are most common and the common rates for it (DSL, Cable, dial-up, by the minute, monthly etc..). Any info would be a great help.

Thanks

You might find yourself in a 'hotspot' if you are near the centre. Then it might be free.
Otherwise it will be ADSL / Broadband. Paid monthly but under contract. Neostrada is what you want.

What about outside of Krakow, say in Ciezkowice? Can one contract for Broadband ethernet right to their home? What is the monthly rate? Can you buy it for say just 2 or 3 months? (summertime only)

Thanks!

And, what do you mean 'hotspot' near the Centre? Is there wide area wireless providing free internet access for roaming pc's? Does that mean there are NO subscriber fees?

Thank you again!

Yes, if you are near Main Market Square you use wireless for free. I use chello but probably neostarda will be the only option for you. There are also numerous small providers in Krakow but not all of them are reliable. Sometimes you can use internet for 1 zloty per month but afterwards - as far as I know - you have to sign a contract for a year. The cheapest rate is about 30 zl per month.
