While Wi-Fi and 3g go hand in hand you may be faced with having to choose between the two especially if there are budgetary constraints technological limitations etc which need to be factored in.

Wi-Fi Hotspots These places are open to public use and let you access the internet on their network while you are there. P r o s: Most place charge nothing for using their internet and they can be found easily in suburban and urban areas. You can also buy food and drinks in the vicinity. C o n s : The establishment may require you to spend in other ways to be eligible to access their internet think Starbucks.  Wi-Fi hotspots also tend to remain unsecured in terms of encryption.  You also need to locate the hotspot and then stay within range of the router or repeater for as long as you wish to be online.

Cyber Cafes Internet cafes let you use their computers for hourly rates and sometimes they even give you access to Wi-Fi internet. P r o s : There is no need to be carrying a device with you because the café has got your covered there.  They would also have peripherals hooked up for you to use such as printers scanners and webcams.  Here too you can buy food and drinks. C o n s : There are fewer internet cafes than there are Wi-Fi hotspots and using a terminal in such a place could get expensive unless you finish quickly.  There is also the issue of many of these systems being exposed to malware.
