That's quite a common situation over there since there are 3 metro lines, a railway terminus, a huge mall and lots of bus lines including long distance ones.

As you might know, Moscow is developing an ambitious and very useful project of covering all the metro with high-speed internet access through wi-fi.

Unlike in Hong Kong, you can get online not at the stations but on the trains, which is much more convenient as you spend much more time on the train rather than waiting at the station.

The project was launched last year, so far we have 5 lines covered, all the rest will be completed by the end of the year.

It has been so convenient just getting on the train, opening your browser and going online.

Today, the situation has changed. You have to register now by entering your mobile number, receiving an sms and inserting the password to get the access. I find it very inconvenient. That's usually the case in many European countries and China - in cafes, bars etc.

I got on the train at the ring line, launched my browser and got this:

I had to get off at the second station so I didn't manage to get an sms (considering that my mobile carrier covers only stations, not tunnels)

I wonder what to do with tablets like iPad that can't accept sms or make calls.

Maybe they do exist. But you know, sometimes you may not have this registration form to submit on a tablet so even if you get the password, it might turn out useless.

I do have a mobile phone, but it's like six years old, and was pretty basic even then. No net connections for me. My mom won an iPad (or some other tablet) in a contest, but refuses to get a cell phone.

But on topic-are the old, elaborate stations expensive to maintain and clean? And what amenities do they have-shops, cafes, restrooms?

So you do have a mobile phone and a mobile number. And you can take your tablet and enter your mobile phone number there to get the password via SMS sent to your mobile phone and then enter this password in the form opened on your tablet, can't you?

Sometimes it just doesn't work, I don't know why. Maybe because the tablet and the cellphone have different MAC addresses.
