Whether you’re visiting Switzerland or just want to save on data, free wifi can be a great option. Let us know where to find the best source.


As a non member of the European Union, roaming charges in Switzerland can be exorbitant. Even if you’re just crossing over the border for a day trip, turning on your phone’s roaming can potentially cost you hundreds. 

Given how reliant we are on our smartphones, this can make travel particularly difficult. 

For those living in Switzerland, phone plans can also be significantly expensive - so much so that you might want to connect to free wifi whenever it is available. 


For freelancers and digital nomads, finding a place with free, reliable wifi can be absolutely essential - and far cheaper than turning on your hotspot.
