Internet Access

Wi-fi in South Pacific accommodation is commonplace these days, especially if you're paying for more than budget digs: you'll generally be given a password with which to log-on (unlimited use), or need to purchase a set amount of online time. Some resorts make the deliberate decision not to have blanket wi-fi access across their facilities, to help stressed-out guests really unwind. You'll also find wi-fi hot spots in major tourist and urban centres, and busy internet cafes. Some of the more remote islands may not have any internet at all; others may surprise you with fast connections. In the Solomon Islands and Easter Island, however, connections are still slow.
