    i dunno about france but if its like here in the uk there are many hotels, bars, cafes, libraries, book shops etc that offer free wifi. all u need to do is turn up with ur laptop, ipad or whatever and away u go. U might even pic up a wifi signal in ur hotel room from a nearby house that hasnt scurely locked their wifi.

    Yes there is a free municipal wifi. Not covering the full city, but definitely available in streets, parks, etc.
    Be aware that the network is shut down at night around 22:00. Don't a
    sk me why, i have no idea.
    Of course, a lot of bars, caf├ęs also offer free wifi. You can also check Fon network, free if you are a member.
    Have a nice stay in Paris
