Internet in the City
There are several ways to connect to the internet when you're out in the city. Most of the cafés and pubs have free WiFi (e.g.: Nyugi kert, Campus Beer&More, Barcraft, Bohém Tanya, etc.), but shopping centers like Árkád and Tesco are offering free wireless internet too. You can use the Wifi Map application for Android and iOS (it needs internet access) or websites like Wigle to find WiFi hotspots all over the city.
Internet at the University
If your home institution is an Eduroam member then you can use the wireless network in the University buildings without any registration. Just log in with your Eduroam account. If you don’t have an Eduroam account or your university isn’t an Eduroam member, don’t worry, you can get access to it in the SZTE Klebelsberg Library.

The University of Szeged also provides another option for wireless internet connection. This network can be reached in most university buildings. Some common areas are also equipped with extra sockets, so you can charge your laptop or mobile phone. For more technical info about this WiFi network, visit this site:
You can also use the PCs to access the internet in József Attila Department of Education and Information Center and Klebelsberg Library, either for yourself or even for group projects.

Internet at your home
If you're in one of the dormitories, you should have internet access either via Ethernet ports, WiFi, or both.
If you're looking for a flat to live in, usually most of them are equipped with internet connection, but if not, you have to sign a contract with one of the service providers.
Telekom is the largest telecommunications provider in Hungary. They have regular broadband, but also some 5G options. You can find them at many shops (T-Pont) in Szeged. For further information go to:
