Sometimes you feel that telecom operators still do not understand the net. Whenever you are in a hotspot, you need to connect quickly. Ideally peer to your home account, or home country operator account (I have a number of Orange Accounts).
Why is it that here in Sao Paulo I've spent 25 min to try to login before succeeding ?
* here when you register on both operators (Vex and Telefonica), you need to give your PASSPORT number + home address + home phone + date of birth ???
* they only accept VISA from Brasil. Hence you have to have another card with you
* On Telefonica, although I paid online, I then got a PAGE ERROR. Impossible to retrieve the login / password I paid for
* Hence I just had to pay a 24h pass (the only option on Vex) so that I would login for the next hour or so. Thieves!
Not a good experience. And I had a hard time finding an AC plug. What are these airports / wifi operators thinking... ?
