Yup! Early days of a new "industry" so it hasn't settled down yet. A supermarket near me has a coffee shop
with an "Internet Cafe" function - you can use their machines for about GB£3 an hour, and when it opened they
had WiFi access for nothing - but that honeymoon is over now and they charge the same for using your own
laptop on WiFi as for using their machines.

They are completely unrelated to your ISP - you may not even have an ISP! You are paying for a connection to
the Internet, rather like paying to use a public phone - it's not related to your home phone.
