Lisbon’s Metro is about to become the second underground train service in Europe to offer free wi-fi internet connection to all passengers, after London. It will start next week at the stations of Marquês de Pombal, Alameda, Campo Grande, and Colégio Militar, and should cover the entire network by the spring of 2014 after a 5-million-euro investment.
All you’ll have to do is search for the ON-FI network on your smartphone or tablet, without the need to register or enter a password. It was also announced that in the near future you may be able to do the same in Lisbon’s main squares.
If you’re looking for free wi-fi connection in Lisbon, you may find it at several cafés in the city, but you may have to ask the waiter for a password. For password-free connection, head to the Armazéns do Chiado mall, right in the center of the city. The best connection is around the food court on the upper floor. Other malls such as Amoreiras and Colombo also offer the same free service.
