We were able to use a neighbours unsecure wifi up until a few weeks ago when they moved out of the area. Damn!
We've been using some of the locutorios and the interet cafes since then but then on Thursday I found out that Vodafone do a USB thingie that you plug into any computer to get internet access anywhere. paid for it on Friday and was connected on Saturday. I had been putting up with sitting at cold internet cafes wasting money on tea that I really didn't want just so I could use their wifi all this time when I didn't need to.

Wow, that's a good deal for wireless. Is it only for business? The way I download I'd breach the 5G barrier in no time. LOL

No its not business only. We just walked into a Vodafone store in town, signed up for an 18 month contract and were given the internet modem. A girl at the store called the next day to tell us when we were set to go online. I think its 39 euros a month over here and it can be used anywhere in Spain. There is a similar package in the UK and I expect its also in other parts of Europe.
I have a pay as you go phone on Vodafone too that I got a month ago and they put some free credit on it when I signed up for the internet thing on Friday.
