I have just purchased a laptop and will need to use it on my travels around Europe to access the web and e-mails. Can anyone suggest the best way of doing this? I suppose the answer is what ISP provides a unuversal dial up number, but I bow to peoples experience.

I may be wrong, but my friend uses his laptop all over the world. As far as I know he just plugs into the hotel phone and uses his normal dialling code for his ISP, but of course it is charged as a call to the UK wherever he is. Just like making a phone call home.

......but this must cost your friend a b....y fortune. Hotel phone charges plus the cost of an International call must come to a few bob. There has to be a cheaper way!!
