There is an endless debate about roaming charges and how much they restrict travellers from taking advantage of mobile services overseas.
But as (some) hotels finally see the light - and opportunity - and offer free wifi as standard, actual destinations will start to see the pressure on them to encourage businesses and tourist attractions to follow suit.
The ironically titled Rotten Wifi watchdog has been polling users to establish which countries have the best provision for wifi.
It looked at the performance of public wifi networks, including those in city squares, parks, restaurants, cafes, etc, to see which country had the best download and upload speeds, as well as overall an user ranking.
The top 20 list is dominated by European countries, with Lithuania coming out on top. The US does not do particularly well.
