Free? Yes. Fast? Not so much.

Here I sit in Steam Cafe at 17th & R Street NW, working from home, or rather working from a cafe.  I’m here because my Verizon DSL, while reasonably fast, keeps dropping out about every five minutes or so.  While I appreciate the fact that Steam offers free wireless to their customers, the speed leaves a lot to be desired at between 30-80Kb/second.  That’s fine for sending e-mail and a bit of web browsing, but downloading big files is downright painful.

So I ask my great city, does anyone know of a place in DC that offers free, fast wireless?  Oh and preferably one where a girl isn’t screaming French into her Skype connection.
