Internet Access

Kazakhstan is a wired country. Internet cafes have largely gone out with the dinosaurs, and the few that remain are usually used for online gaming by teenage boys. With the exception of cheapest, down-at-heel hotels in remote towns, it is now rare to encounter accommodation that doesn't offer free wi-fi. Free wi-fi is ubiquitous in cafes, bars and restaurants. If you have an unlocked smartphone or tablet, it's easy and inexpensive to purchase a local SIM card with oodles of data.
