    Matilda - Internet?

    Another question about the Matilda, thanks for those who responded earlier. Do you know if there is Internet available? I've seen on their webpage a long time ago (I think) that they have dial-up. This seems a little shocking to me as I don't know anyplace in Hong Kong that still has dial-up. So I'm wondering if you can perhaps pick up wireless from other sources? Or if my information is just out of date?

    Thanks!

    I was in a private room and there was WIFI - worked great and we were able to skype everyone as the connection was fast. Not sure if it's the same deal with the other rooms. Best call Inty Ting in Matilda customers relations and she will be able to tell you for sure. Also have you done the Matilda tour yet? I believe they show you all the facilities etc.

    WIFI is in every corner in Matilda Hospital, but you have to pay for it. The charge for last year is $250 per day, they have package deal of a week and a month, the longer you sign up for, the lower the rate per day. It's expensive (more expensive than Mandarin Oriental HK as I was told), I think you can also use Internet with the USB modem from other ISPs, that would be a cheaper choice.

    We were in there from 1 Jan and was $250 a day. Ridiculously expensive so we didn't get it!

    Wifi is free with the private room package, but otherwise you have to pay for it.

    I had it for free, at least didn't pay for it. Was also in a private room (2nd floor; surgery though). It's not a secure network though ...
