Access to the press tent most certainly doesn't equal internet access! Media accred is upwards of 4000euro, then internet is at least that again (if you go the ASO internet way).

Price has come down then. The two years I was on it, 2010 and 2011, internet was not included. I'd write my stories, then drive out into the nearest town to find a wi-fi, upload stories, and press on. Was fun, but draining!
