Livewire: Wireless and internet access in Stockholm

You’re never more than a few blocks away from the Internet in Stockholm.

Be on the lookout for Sidewalk Express, which can be found at the many 7-Elevens that populate the city. Sidewalk Express has almost 40 locations in Stockholm. You’ll also find Sidewalk Express at the Central Station and several McDonalds. If you want to sip a latte while you surf, check out Roberts Coffee at Drottninggatan 33 or Café Access in the basement of Kulturhuset (Sergels Torg). For 24-hour access, try 7-Eleven at Odengatan 32 or Götgatan 57 at Medborgareplatsen. You’ll pay 19 SEK for an hour, but save your access code since it’s valid for seven days at Sidewalk Express locations anywhere in the country.

Thank you! I was looking for a list when I was there a couple weeks ago. I'll keep it on reference for the next visit.
