There are a few places around the Wellfleet area for you to enjoy internet access if you're willing to leave the comforts of your vacation home:

The Wellfleet Public Library has 8 high-speed internet computers & wireless access available to all - no library card necessary. 3 of the 8 are 15 minutes express stations with no signup (wait your turn). The others can be booked in person or by phone for a half hour.

There's a free wireless access connection at Mac's Seafood at the pier in Wellfleet:   www.macsseafood.com  265 Commercial St, Wellfleet  (508) 349-9611 / 349-0404
 
Customers of The Juice Restaurant can enjoy at 6 Commercial Street, Wellfleet, right in town. (508) 349-0535. Wireless access may be limited (to number of users or time of day?) last I recall.

There's free wireless access for customers of the Flying Fish Cafe & Deli, 29 Briar Lane in Wellfleet (508) 349-7292 / 349-3100 across the street from the original Box Lunch location (behind the center of town in Wellfleet). They may have limited power outlet facilities.

Another place is the Tiger Restaurant & Cafe which is part of Willy's Gym. It's a few miles down the road on Eastham. Here's the link: http://www.willysgym.com/cafe.html You don't need to be a member of the gym to get wireless internet access. Patrons in the cafe get free high-speed wireless internet access using your own laptop/wireless PDA or rent one of their laptops.

May you spend more time outside doing activities like real surfing while you are on vacation. There is plenty of time for web surfing when you're back home after vacation !

We are interested in hearing from you with any updates and addendums.

Heres info for web access right from your vacation home!

The folks at www.WellfleetLighthouse.com vacation rentals scoured the web to find a FREE one-month trial offer of high speed internet for while you're on vacation in Wellfleet ! 

We suggest getting the software set up on your computer and tested before you travel. Read all about it below.

NetZero HiSpeed 3G is the next generation of dial-up Internet access. It accelerates your Web surfing experience using your existing dialup modem and the phone jack at your vacation rental home.

In fact, with 3G technology NetZero HiSpeed is the fastest surfing you can get without a broadband connection.  Many internet service providers don't offer broadband connections in remote areas of the Cape like Wellfleet.

 
FREE first month trial for high speed dialup internet access with local access numbers for Wellfleet (and other parts of the country). 

We think the best deal available is to ask them forthe "High Speed 3G service with 1st month free" and specifically ask for the version of the plan with no annual commitment and no early termination fee
