Fast internet connection for 24 hours only in London?

Asked by saservp (291points) July 14th, 2010

Does anybody know of a place where I can get/use/rent a FAST internet connection for about a day in/near London? I have a big backup that I want to seed to my backup provider, and so having a 20+mbit connection that I could use just for a a short period would be fantastic. My home dsl line is only 256kbit and I don’t want to buy a whole new line just for this one upload. I could pay by the hour or day or something. Do any shops/people do this?

Few internet providers would go to the trouble of connecting you without signing you on for at least a month. Your best bet is probably an internet cafe/gaming lounge, or maybe a motel room. Many motels come with wireless internet, sometimes free, and when you ring up to book you can ask what speeds you might get there. How much would you be prepared to pay for this connection? Is it essential that you use your own computer, or can you use someone else’s and save the data on a portable storage device?
