Turn on your wifi in Korea and you’re likely to hit at least 10 different networks. But many of them will be password protected. So how?
The 3 major telcos – SK, KT and LG – provide high speed password-protected wifi at many locations. But you will need a local number to access these. Still, they also offer free wifi in some places, so look out for “Free U+ Zone” and other networks.
Then there are the cafes and fast food joints. The wifi password is usually indicated on the receipt, so if you are really desperate you can look for discarded receipts. Sometimes it could be the café’s phone number.
Incheon Airport also has free wifi so don’t hesitate to turn it on upon landing.
