    The place where I'll be staying in Batu Ferringhi, Penang , offers no access to the internet.
    For work I need to use Skype a few times a week for 2 hours each time.

    I am looking for an internet cafe or a location that offers WiFi and is reasonably quiet in the afternoon and early evening. I can use either a public PC or my own laptop. The connection speed needs to be enough to support Skype audio. (I don't necessarily need to use the video function.) It is no problem if the cost is relatively high. The space must be a non-smoking area.



    In Teluk Bahang or Tanjung Bungah or near Lebih Chulia or in other locations in Penang would be good to hear about, too. The more options the better.



    Any and all help appreciated!
    TIA

    there will be several-just ask at where you stay-and even there the WiFi may be much better as you think now. Yes-they all do skype. tipical price 3/4 MYR/hr.
    BUT: your idea about non-smoke is a non-plusser-thats by far the hardest to achieve in MY.

    There is a good no smoking 24 hour internet cafe in Batu Ferringhi on Jalan Sungai Emas. The bus stop is named for and is at the Petronas petrol stand which is on the corner of this road and the main road to/from Georgetown.

    The cafe is on the ground floor of the building of shops on the right side of the road as you walk less than 2 minutes up Sungai Emas from the gas station, across from the 7/11. You can see the PCs through the big glass windows. (Disregard the sign for an apparently defunct internet place.) RM 2 per hour.

    There is also a clean looking no smoking internet cafe 3 minutes from the Island Plaza bus stop. Go up the big road where you can see the Chinese and Hindu temples next to each other. It is on 2 floors of the building on the left side of the street. RM 2 per hour.
