Default Breckenridge - Internet access?

So, I have recently found out that our accomodations for my trip to Breck next week does not have internet access. We'll be there for 6 days and nights... what do you locals suggest? I was spoiled on my last trip in that the hotel we were in had pretty good wifi.

Gonna be at the corner of French St and Jefferson

Why do you need internet? When I go on vacation that is typically the last thing I look for. Plenty of coffee shops and the like that have wifi access in the Breck area...

For communication and as something quiet to do while vegging out on the couch after a day's worth of riding.

I expect that we'll be out and about sometimes, but evenings in can be relaxing too

If you are right in town, you might be able to poach a neighbor's unsecured signal. Otherwise, just let google be your friend.

I occasionally hang out at the crown. It is a coffee shop type of scene. They have internet, or you can just go sit in the lobby of some hotel and act like you are staying there.

Thats always an option, but I'll be a good 4 blocks from most of the hotels west of S.Park Ave

Here's an update.
Got in last night. Have a full 5 bars of signal strength with T-mobile and am using Wifi tethering on my phone. It is working like a dream so far. Pretty fast.

Might try to download a 300mb torrent later this week to see how reliable it is
