Site offer Any reader who has found himself in a hotel room abroad with a laptop and an urgent need to connect to the Internet will know that feeling of dread which comes with the prospect of being completely fleeced on the cost of the call.

The ideal would be a pay-as-you-go roaming service which allows connection to the Internet using 18,000 local-rate access numbers in 105 countries.

Which leads us uncannily on to Register associate NetAway, which offers just such a service to customers worldwide - not just the UK - with no membership and no monthly fee.

It really is that simple. You sign up, you get the software, you're ready to connect worldwide.

Of course what you really want to know is: how much does all this freedom to roam cost? Well, there's an inital sign up fee for one of two Netaway packages: Standard (with five hours of Internet access) £24.99/ €35 / $38 or Premium (with 15 hours access) £64.99/ €95 / $100. That's a one-off fee, and once you've downloaded your software, you're away.

Calls are then charged at £0.08 / € 0.12 $0.13 / per minute, on top of the cost of the local call. When you're running short of minutes, you can top-up online. Bulk buying minutes (1,500 and above) further reduces the impact on your wallet by cutting the NetAway charge to 6 pence per minute.

So, it doesn't take much to work out that NetAway's package could save you a pretty penny over hotel international call rates, as well as taking much of the hassle out of connecting when you're on the move. Get the full picture - including glowing testimonials and a short and sweet explanation as to the merits of NetAway's service here. ®
