It's often quite good inside the Wellington Library (2nd or 3rd floor by the windows is usually my best signal, often the little cafe bit on the mezzanine floor is okay)
The library but speed can be highly dependent on where you sit, and what speed the connection is negotiated at. Large swathes of the library seem to connect at 5/7 Mbps to the access point and can be so slow(even though you'd think it doesn't matter as that's still decent speed) but if the AP syncs at a higher rate then I see up to 500k KBps up and down.
Any part of the waterfront – at St James bar (rather than theatre) where NZX is free by TradeMe; down the other end by the TSB arena and on Willis st is run for free by the council. Council wifi is a lot stronger down Lambton/Willis as well
St. John's bar, you mean. With the beanbags on the grass.
Hello fellow Wellingtonians! Quick question for you: I'm new to town and noticed recently that there is free wifi in Wellington CBD! Can anyone suggest where a good place to chill out is where the connection is best? I've been going to Enigma opposite St James Theatre, but the signal isn't great there.
