Hi -
I am traveling outside of U.S and will be staying for a week at Rio, Brazil.  
I just found out that my Verizon Broadband access card will not be working when I get there?
Would anyone know if there is something that I can use that would work in Rio, Brazil?
I don’t mind purchasing something for a few hundred dollars; it might even be worth for me.
I rather not use the dial-up over there for internet access.



Thanks,

Yes,

Most hotels these days have wireless internet access in the hotel rooms or in the lobby.
In some hotels the internet access is free or you might be asked to pay nominal fee for it.
Most hotels will have a place where computers are available for business travelers.

I do not recommend that you use the public or hotel provided computers. These computers are often infected with spyware and key loggers. It is best that you take your own laptop.

Have a safe and fun trip.

Cheers,
Nitadmin
